Surprise pets are a bad idea, I agree. Having a pet takes so time and dedication - it should really be pet you know the person will love, IMO.

Oh, and happy birthday :) Hope you had a great one!
well...they are doing better then the bowl...at least thats a good thing...I'll see if they survive long enough for me to get the money to get them a bigger tank and a better filter and stuff...but for now the best I can do is feed them and get more stuff for their tank later on... .-. at least more stuff to covered the bottom part...and more plants...

other then that...I have no idea if they are male or female...can someone tell me? and maybe we should come up with names for them... ._.

Also my birthday was on the 12th...kinda late for saying birthday praise...XD just saying.

<3 My betta fish.

happy (late birthday) in order to tell if goldfish are male of female they need to reach full growth. and for the tank you should get a 10 gallon at walmart (14dollars) and use the filter they already have.

Betta Lover with too many of them

What is wrong with my walmart! D= 10 gallon tanks there cost A LOT more then 14 dollars...they cost near 60+ dollars...well thats with a filter/top/etc...also my walmart doesn't really sell much fish stuff...they don't sell fish anymore as well...I guess people complained to much...

those look like Pond Comets (a species of goldfish). they should do fine in a 5g for quite a while because they are really slow growers which is why they make such good feeder fish...but if kept right they are tough little guys...mine chase around my Pacu...its hilarious...

1 Red Bellied Pacu
2 Pond Comets
1 Striped Raphael Catfish
1 Sailfin Pleco

just a little update on them...they seem to like the 5gallon a lot more (no suprise there) and they seem to be more open now...before they would run away and hide in the corner, now they go up to the tank to see me (or get food...even thought I already fed them...>.> but yeah...) Also they ALWAYS follow each other...I know goldfish are social but man...they never leave each others side.

I still haven't come up with names for them yet...

also my mom is a idiot...she looked at the tank and said "isn't that a little big for just two goldfish?" I replied "no, this is tiny compaired to what they really need...they can grow up to a foot long" and then she justs looked at my like I was crazy and left. ._.
