I have decided to get goldfish for inside my house; anyone have any tips?


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)

    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.

    Again; thanks!

    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.

    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
