New to having fish

Hi everyone!

I am new to having fish. I always vowed to never have fish and now I do because of my kids, which is ok with me now.

I have a 5.5 gallon tank that has a light and pump and filter. It all came with the tank from Wal-Mart. I started out with two goldfish that my kids won at a fair. This started the fish frenzy :) The white goldfish died after a few days and the orange was with us for two and a half weeks. My son purchased a little spongebob house for the tank (been in there since we got it). It appears that my orange goldfish decided to get curious of the house after two and a half weeks and he was too big for it. I think he got stuck in there in the middle of the night as he had passed when I woke up the next morning. Everything about the fish was fine before I went to bed.

I cleaned the tank and changed the water, adding in the water treatment. We purchased two platy's - 1 blue and 1 sunburst wag. it appears that they are both female and pregnant! After do much research on this site and others, I most definitely have two pregnant fishies!

Welcome to the forum. Your story is close to my own. I have to stay away from the fish when visting the pet store. It seem that I want to bring home another fish each time. Good luck with your new hobby.

With 2 preggo platys you'll be needing a larger tank xD 5.5 gal is barely enough to safely house the 2 you have
