Max Size: 25 - 30 cm
A good staple food for goldfish is a high quality floating granule. The small size is best, as this assures all fish get their fair share. Feeding floating granules, two to three times a day, in the right quantities is one of the major factors in keeping goldfish healthy and active. For variety, occasionally substitute flake food, and, more importantly, some vegetable material. The addition of Oranges adds much needed Vitamin C, and is especially beneficial during both spring and autumn when the temperature changes, which can result in the immune system of the Goldfish coming under stress and producing extra slime.
Goldfish are best kept with other Goldfish, in a tank or pond. A good rule of thumb to minimise aggression is to keep straight tailed fish together with other straight tailed fish, and fantailed fish with fantailed fish. View Our Fish Compatibility Guide
