Providing the Best Care for your Goldfish
Goldfish care is critical for the health of your goldfish.
Unfortunately, goldfish are very vulnerable to disease, with
young goldfish even more so. Many new goldfish owners have
watched their goldfish die in their fish tanks or aquariums only
days or even hours after purchasing a goldfish. Fortunately,
there are a few simple steps you can take to preserve the health
of your goldfish.
First, do all that is possible to make sure that your fish is
healthy. If there are any sores on its body, pass on it. Before
you put your fish in the fish bowl, let the water return to room
temperature. After your goldfish is in the fishbowl, feed it right
away. However, be sure to not feed it too much. Usually, just a
pinch of fish food will be sufficient for your goldfish. Fish
bowls will usually need to be cleaned about once every week or
Some useful tips on Goldfish Care.
Usually, only two goldfish should be in the same fishbowl,
aquarium or fish tank. Any more, and it will jeopardize the
health of your goldfish. If your goldfish appears unhealthy,
consider buying a healthier fish food. If your fish does not
appear to be getting healthier, consult your veterinarian.
Goldfish will be much healthier if you provide a fish bowel or
plastic plants that your fish will be able to swim around or in.
Goldfish, under proper care, will usually live about 5 or 6
years. If you take good goldfish care, you will be able to enjoy
and appreciate your gold fish for many years.
