yes you can provided your tank space is adequate.

Depends.

Ryukins are more aggresive and some are known to attack/bully other goldfish.

I keep ryukin with ranchus,had 4 initially but has given 2 away due to their aggresive behaviour.I still have the balance 2 that are more docile.

Thanks. I had similar experience. My two fantails kept attacking the orandas. No choice but to give away the fantails. That's why I asked about ryukins. I am afraid that the ryukins will bully the orandas. Guess I have to try my luck if I want to add ryukins into my tank.

Go ahead. Some Pearlscales have poor swimming skills as compared to the more agile Ranchu. yes.gif If you got a huge tank, do take some small look whether they get enough food, otherwise they issn't any need to attend special care.

My 2 cents of opinion here... is my personally view, some GFs have their own personailty.. som r more aggresive n some less.. I reckon among all my types of GFs (ryukins, ranchus, orandas, pom poms) (i don mixed them).. my most socially active ones (n possibly "aggresive" types) r my orandas...

when I buy GFs, (if it is possible) I make a point to choose the active (some say healthly) ones, but not a leader.. juz those tat goes w the group.. so this was the shld be some kind of grp cohension whn u add them in..

I think I cn usually spot a leader type wher the pack might juz follow it.. there is usually 2-5 depending on the number of fishes in e LFS tank

And of course, don pick those tat r like "introverts" s they well prob b tat or hav some probs (possibly health/disease), which is y the others r not groupin with it/them

Thn again, this is juz my opinion lah!

Luckily your fishmates ain't antagonising as above but compatible in most areas except perhaps during feeding where speed is concerned.
