All The Secrets About Goldfish Care

Aug 17, 2007
One of the most important aspects of keeping goldfish is being fully adept in the area of goldfish care. Unfortunately these fish are well known for their ability to catch a multitude of diseases such as Ick and fin rot, which are two of the most common. It's highly important that you familiarize yourself in the area of goldfish care before you decide to purchase your own fish.

So many people are constantly asking me why they have to keep buying new goldfish all the time and I always ask them what their dedication to goldfish care is. What I find is this, most people don't actually follow the 3 simple rules of goldfish care and they are:

Rule Number One Of Goldfish Care

Keep your tank clean at all times. If you can't afford to by a high powered filter, which is most people, than you must make sure you are cleaning your tank ever week. If you aren't doing this now than you better start because this is one of the major reasons why goldfish become infected with deadly diseases. Fin rot is one of the most common results of an unclean tank. If you are one of those people who doesn't clean your tank weekly than go take a look at the tails on your goldfish. More than likely you will notice there are many holes and parturition on the ends of the tails.

Rule Number Two Of Goldfish Care

Feed your goldfish once daily. Again most people tend to feed their goldfish too often. This is one of the worst things you can do to your goldfish. Unfortunately goldfish will eat until they kill themselves and many people ask me why their fish suddenly pass even though they seemed completely healthy. More than likely overeating was the cause. Just take a look at them, unless you have a pregnant fish, there's no reason why you should have a fat fish unless you're feeding them more than once a day.

Rule Number Three of Goldfish Care

Always clean any external object you plan to place in your tank. You may think you're doing everything right, you clean your tank weekly, you're feeding your fish once daily, but then suddenly after you place a new object inside the tank, one of your goldfish dies. What more than likely has happened is that with the object, came a certain disease from the outside air that unfortunately was deadly for your goldfish. To prevent this from occurring, always make sure you disinfect and clean any new object you add to the tank. That way you'll be reducing the risk of your goldfish catching any unwanted diseases.

Follow the three rules of goldfish care and you'll have happy healthy goldfish for quite some time to come.
