Hi everyone. I love goldfish with a passion and began experimenting many years ago with procedures and treatments. I have a website called goldfish emergency' and a forum that has been up for two years in August.

I keep 7 fish in a 120 gallon stock tank; three fantail; one common; one shubunkin and two comets; well over 36" of fish all together. The oldest one is 12 yrs; the youngest two are 3 yrs. My largest fantail is now 12" from head to tail.

My site recommends creating a natural ecosystem for goldfish by recreating a more natural pond like environment; like open topped tanks and plenty of surface action. The site also recommends pond pumps instead of top loading filtering systems. Pond pumps increase this much needed surface action which increases oxygen levels and decreases harmful bacteria.

The two most important things you can do for your goldfish is perform frequent water changes and provide plenty of surface action exposed to fresh air.

Never keep your tanks enclosed. We should all be flipping our lids. lol
