White Goldfish named Glutton, that is 17 years old.
 
 
Hi, For my first birthday, I recieved a 10 cent feeder fish as a present. It turned out that this wonderful present happened to be a comet goldfish put in with the regular goldfish.
  
The first name for this fish was Sandy, as it was a white and orangish colour. Within five years (as this fish continued to thrive) it slowly lost it's colour. The fish is now pure white, and is eight inches long.
  
We no longer call it Sandy, but The Glutton because it has cost us over 400 dollars in fish food. I am eighteen now, so that makes my fish roughly seventeen.
 
I was once told that if a fish could live past five years, it would probably live for thirty. It's in a 20-gallon tank now with no other fish because he hogs the food and starves any other fish in the tank.
 
But, I thought I'd just comment, and send you his picture. I have attached it with this email .... hanks for your time

Reply. Hello Celeste and thank you for your interesting comments, which I enjoyed reading. I think it's wonderful that you've had this fish for 17 years and hopefully many more years. Congratulations.
 

Customer Comments

Dear Fish people;
 
I quite enjoyed your site. I have been an aquarium friend myself for 25 years. I spent many years with the fresh water heated tank tropicals. Several years ago I went to cold water gold fish. Oranda's and comets. After much enjoyment in the house, we built an outside pond. They spent the summers out and the winters in. They usually double or triple in size over the summer and slow down their growth in the winter.
 
I would like to comment on floating food and sinking food. I've used both and learned in several months that sinking food is not a good thing. When the fish are out in the pond they eat bugs off the top of the water and grow wonderfully ...
 
I have been feeding floating pellet food and if I may say so, our fish children are beautiful, healthy and swimming upright. I enjoyed your educational insight on fish.
 
Best fishes to you,
Susan

Hi, my name is Natasha, and I'm in grade 5. I'm doing a project on Goldfish. I was wondering if you can answer 2 of my questions.
 
My first question is what do goldfish hear under water?
 
My second one is do goldfish sleep or rest? How? I hope you can answer before February 8.
 
Thank you!
From Natasha
 
 
 
Reply. Goldfish belong to the order of fish called Ostariophysi. Along with the Tetras and Catfish this group has a unique set of bones that attach to their air bladder. These bones amplify and conduct underwater sounds received in their air bladder to the auditory areas of their brains allowing Goldfish and their relatives to hear very well.

Goldfish are diurnal and at night seem to go into a trance-like state. It's not called sleep, because they don't have eye-lids to close. But other than closing their eyes, it seems to be just like our sleep.

I read your section on keeping goldfish. In it you said that your regular goldfish might not be happy at all being kept with comets or koi. The article didn't however, explain why. I have a comet in my tank of goldfish and would like to know what that comment means.
 
Thank you.
Joy
 
 
Reply. Hello Joy. Thank you for your question. In my mind there are three Groups of Goldfish.
 
Red and White Pond Comets at AquariumFish.net.   Group 1
Pond Comets which have so-called comet-tails with two lobes on their tails that are arranged with one lobe above the other. We sell Pond Comets like the one shown to the left at our website. Click here for more information about the Goldfish in this Group.
 
Red and White Oranda taken at AquariumFish.net. Group 2
Fancy Goldfish with two lobes on their tail fins that are arranged horizontally with one lobe to the left and the other to the right of the fish. This Group includes Fantails, Black Moors, and Orandas, Click here for more about these Goldfish.
 
Red and White Ranchu taken at AquariumFish.net. Group 3
Very Fancy Goldfish, like the Red and White Ranchu shown to the left, plus Lionheads, Bubble Eyes, and Celestials have very limited swimming ability. We do not have more information about this Group on our website.
   
Bubble Eye Fancy Goldfish. Picture by AquariumFish.net.   This is a Bubble Eye.
Goldfish, which is also a member of Group 3. The bubbles, which are under the eyes, are actually enlarged tear ducts. Bubble Eyes will usually be nipped by the Goldfish in Group 1 and Group 2.
 
The Goldfish in Group 1 swim faster than fish in Groups 2 and 3, eat most of the food and will usually nip on fish in Groups 2 and 3.
 
The fish in Group 2 swim much faster than fish in Group 3, eat most of the food and usually nip on fish in Group 3.
 
So Goldfish from Groups 1, 2, and 3 should each be kept separately with Goldfish in their own Group and not be mixed with Goldfish from the other two Groups.
 
For example, keep the various types of Goldfish in Group 2 together but do not mix them with Goldfish from Group 1 or with Goldfish from Group 3.
 
All of the Goldfish in these three Groups are the same fish species, Carassius auratus, and could possibly interbreed.
 
Koi are a different fish species, Cyprinus carpio, and will certainly grow too big, swim too fast, eat all the food, and nip on all the types of Goldfish in Groups 2 and 3. But sometimes Koi and Goldfish from Group 1 get along for a while, but not always.
