Overfeeding... it is considered one of the major cases of goldfish illness and even death, overfeeding is sometimes carried away by our worries and lack of goldfish keeping knowledge, for ex. some of the newbies doesn't read or getting a good breifing in the pet shop whenever they purchase a goldfish, so what they do is just feeding their goldfish about 5 times a day with massive pellets or flakes. I went to my friend's house 2 days ago.. and saw his goldfish tank colored red and the goldfish poops are also colored in red...

I felt guilty because I was the one who brought him to this hobby and now 6 of his fish have already died.. because I wasn't able to explain to him about overfeeding, so I wrote this article to remind our RG members to please follow up and give them basic breifing of these things if you happen to see a newbie in fish keeping.. to avoid deaths and torture of their new goldfish.
