i have all sorts of info on them. i keep orandas now. in the past i have kept fantails,moors and telescopes. there are also ryukins,ranchu,bubble eyes,celestials,blue egg phoenix (rare),shukin,veiltails,pearlscales,tosakin and a few others. some of them are delicate and do well with other delicates.
they do best with a ph around 7.5 and they do not need heaters in their tanks. as far as tank size requirements,it is 20 gallons for the first fish and 10-15 gallons for each additional fish.i would not go above 5 for your tank. they can get quite large.
you will want a decent filter with 10 x turn over rate for them. i use two canisters on my goldie tank.
a decent sinking pellet for a feeding staple is needed. i use new life spectrum. others have had good results with the omega brand and saki hikari.
if you want to include some easy and goldfish proof plants, i can point you in the right direction there also.
there are a few people on the forum that keep goldies. we will be happy to help. i have been keeping goldies for over 20 years.they are my absolute favorite fish. i also know quite a few breeders across the country,if that can be of help. they are more expensive,but you get what you pay for.
