Goldfish
 
I am considering another goldfish now. I have finally moved on after the passing of my Calico Ryukin, Bubba almost a month ago now. I am just curious to see if anyone would have any tips they could give me as far as Fancy Goldfish go. I would like to know what varieties of food they would eat (view photos of all the foods I have at dorkofthecentury.webs.com) Also, would goldfish eat fry? Please give me any tips you can offer. Thank you.

Yours truely,
Zombie

first tip.....nothing smaller than a 30 gallon for a goldfish

I am already aware of that. How small for two?

IMO 30 is a bit too much for a single goldfish. But then again, it isn't good to keep a single goldfish.

A 45 gallon would support 3 fancy goldfish, given you have good filtration and regular water changes. In groups of 3 or more, goldfish will be happier and more brave.
