    Why I Love Fancy Goldfish

    I have just downsized my 29 gallon tank to a 20 gallon shallower tank for my black moor Merlin. Merlin is the 3rd attempt I have made in trying to raise fancy goldfish. My first 2 that I had in a 29 gallon tank were an Oranda and a Ryukin. I lost them both about a year apart...

    I have 4 fancy tails.

    One is a black Moor. In December Mike Tyson (my black moor) started laying down at the bottom of the tank. I checked my water parameters and turned out my ammonia was very high (I removed fresh plants from my tank and due to the Christmas season neglected it for a few weeks) I...

    Okay, so I just got a white lionhead

    that I named Marshmallow, but I have an orange and white oranda that I cannot figure out how to name. He's very curious and brave. He's also quite smart and a fast swimmer as well (for his size at least). Can someone help suggest some good names that match his personality?

    I have two fancy goldfish.

    I have to say, they really are the best pets ever! I'm not much of a dog or cat person, I've never liked how dogs are fairly high maintenance and cats have so much hair that gets on everything. All my goldfish do is swim around quietly in their tank. They're so cute!
