Goldfish tend to be a good beginner fish for the hobbyist who is wanting to try keep an Aquatic pet, the only downfall being they create a lot of waste in aquariums, so having a Filter which is suitable to keep up with the waste they produce is necessary. Goldfish prefer a Alkaline Ph as well as foods with little amounts of protein, because of the risk of bloating, Frozen de-shelled Peas, as well as our Homemade Pea & Prawn Frozen Mix as a treat, which will keep them in Optimal Health.

They will do best in most tank sizes or bowls, as long as its not overcrowded and you have adequate filtration. Water changes have to be of regular importance as to help reduce toxin levels formed by the fishes waste and food.
