Scientific Name
Carassius auratus
 

Comments
Fancy Goldfish are very nice fish for a pond or a large cool water aquarium with at least 30-gallons of water. These Fancy Goldfish varieties are available in several colors: Red, Red and White, Calico, Red and Black, and solid Black like the Black Moors shown above.

     
Here are some Fancy Fantails in our facility. There are several varieties: red, red and white, calico, and some have brilliant diamond scales. Click here to buy Fantails like these from us.   Goldfish - Fantail Gold Fish at AquariumFish.net, Tropical Fish store.
 
 
   

Appropriate Home
An outdoor Pond or a large Cool Water Aquarium with at least 30-gallons of water, an external power filter with a BIO-Wheel, and at most 1/4 of gravel, but no heater because these are cool water fish. Click here for more about cool water aquariums. Click here for more about ponds.

Like all goldfish, these Fancy Goldfish, prefer cool water in the range of 35 to 75 degrees F. with 65 degrees being about ideal. Of course, these fish must be allowed to adjust gradually to a temperature change. For example, don't take fish from an aquarium in your home that might be 70 degrees and put them in an outdoor pond at 50 degrees F.

But over a period of days these fish can adjust to temperature changes. The greater the change the more time required to adjust to the change. It is best to move fish when the water temperatures are close to being the same.

 
 
   

Recommended Diet
Small Fancy Goldfish that are less than 3" long should be fed TetraFin or other floating flake food at least twice a day. Larger Fancy Goldfish over 3" long should be fed floating pellet foods, which are sold in most stores that sell pet fish.

A variety of floating flake foods and floating pellet foods for goldfish are available in most stores that sell fish for ponds. Click here for more information about feeding fish.

Be sure the flake food and the food sticks are labeled for Goldfish and not for Tropical Fish.

We've read advice elsewhere that all Goldfish should be fed sinking food, because when they take food off the surface, they will swallow air bubbles that will cause problems. This is contrary to our experience.

I just watched my Goldfish eating off the surface of the water. After most mouthfuls of food, he passed an air bubble or two out of his gill. The ancestors of this fish have been eating food off the surface of the water for a very long time. Of course they also ate off the bottom and at all levels of the water between the top and bottom too. So don't worry about your Goldfish swallowing air while eating. Feeding food that floats is a good practice.

If your fish don't eat all of the food in 10 minutes, get a net and remove the uneaten food. Click here for more about feeding.

I also feed my Goldfish a few live Black Worms. I feed each Goldfish 2 or 3 worms every other day. Click here for more about Black Worms.

Compatibility
These Fancy Goldfish including Orandas, Fantails, Telescopes and Black Moors are compatible with each other and make a nice mixture. But they will often pick on Bubble Eyes and Celestials, which do better when kept separately.

Click here to see the types of Fancy Goldfish for sale in our facility.

Orandas, Fantails, Telescopes and Black Moors are not compatible with Pond Comets, Shubunkins, and Koi which swim faster, are more aggressive, and will eat most of the food.

I have kept a group of White Clouds with my Goldfish for many years, and they get along well together. Click here to read more about White Clouds.

Size and Lifespan
