they are also one of the more aggressive goldfish.

i heard a rumor that petco is going to have their $1/gallon sale again soon.i know they have the sale 3-4 times yearly.

adding more fish or snails to a tank this size is counterproductive.if you lack the correct filtration,you will need to do more water changes.if you do not have the time or desire to do the water changes/vacs,i recommend against getting goldfish.i would also keep it a bare bottom tank until you upgrade and get a better filter and larger tank.this will help to keep your water parameters in check. then use a little sand and decorate.for now i would give them as much swimming space as possible.

i suggest never using gravel with goldfish.it has too many places for detritus to build up,leading to poor water quality and illness.

they do require a lot of care and upkeep,making them one of the harder fish to keep successfully.
I love that sale, I got a 55 last time!
I was planning on silica sand for them.
