Once you get them set up outside you can almost forget about them but I have been thinking a long time about getting one for indoors or maybe more. Should there be two to stay happy? I have seen one alone mostly and they look healthy but just seems two would be company for each other but I want what will be healthiest and last longest with less trouble. How about decoration in the vase or marbles etc.? All tips appreciated. (Image-elizabethannedesigns.com)

I do have a cat; so thanks!
I will remember that; thank you!
Actually I had her in mind when I decided to get 1 or 2. Won't that be fun for her? I will weigh down the container not to get turned over & cover I think it will make a beautiful addition in large vase or 2. Someone here has done it for long tim
Thank you Jean; I think you covered everything! I sure appreciate that! I have the bowl, over 1 gal, stones and a ship. I even have pH strips but I will have to learn all about that and feeding it.
Wow; this looks interesting, I will check it out. Thank you!
I have some huge vases actually and would love to doll up one or two of those with goldfish. I had an aquarium once and it was a nightmare having to take care of. Maybe a vase will do for a year or two anyway?
Going by a goldfish I see in local business about 3 years old; only about 3 in. (maybe 4 with fins) it is in a large vase & very healthy looking. I have outside goldfish & had a cat 20 yrs old so I don't doubt my concern, thus the question.
Just because it is alive doesn't mean it is healthy. Plenty of fish "LIVE" in a vase. It doesn't mean their quality of life is good. Stunting growth sure isn't something most would purposely do to their dog or cat. It's your decision, just advise.
I appreciate your advice but why are you so always attacking with your advice? Did I date your husband or something or is it just PMS?
I state it like it is. Not an attack, just my thoughts. No more no less! Hence why I made it clear that I wasn't intending to sound rude, asked for you not to take it that way, and said it was your decision and just advise. And why say always?
Maybe you should go back and read your comments, well to especially me & maybe others I don't know but you always sound mad. Or attacking. Like suggesting I wanted to stunt a pets growth. I guess it is hard to look at one's self so just forget it
Please if you are going to be overly sensitive to how I put it please do us both a favor and just delete it, I was trying to help. In the future I will remember not to bother when it comes to your questions. Have a good evening Jackie.
I would appreciate that. Good evening to you too.
I do want to learn first as I did with my goldfish ponds but if I have to have an aquarium I will pass; one fish would do me & seeing this one in a business doing so good for so long made me think I could. Maybe not! They have but one in large va
Thanks for the advice and the suggestion. I had a beta years ago so now I have to go for the goldfish. The betas are beautiful though but I just want something tranquil. Boring, even. lol
