Giving fish a timeout!
Three of my goldfish were picking on my white goldfish They were really harrassing her badly. My ten year old suggesting giving them a timeout, and we did! We moved them for two hours out of the 60 gallon tank into a bowl. When we put them back they never harrased the white fish again. It was amazing. Timeout works, even for fish!
That seems so silly. I'm amazed
Ok, that is funny.
actually i completely believe you since ive done it before myself. i took out my comet and just held him in the air for a little bit then put him back in the tank after he started attacking my ryukin goldfish. but he was very percistant so i had to get the ryukin a new tank of his own
you got lucky. Usally if there is a reason they are picking on another fish simply moving the fish out of sight for a little while wont do it. There are things that can be done but since goldfish arent territorial i dont see any of them working.
