lol its funny, we were just talking about this earlier. but i find it funny because way back when, when i was little, and had the 10gallon in the bedroom, i would always win those goldfish from the fair, you know, shoot the target win a fish. dont see them much now as it was pretty bad for the fish hanging in bags all day in the sun... but i never had any die. up until just a few years ago actually, my mom had a few of them in her pond, and **** they had to have been 10 years old.
i didnt do anything to the tank, didnt know better. didnt condition it, do water changes, check anything, always figured, it ok to drink, so must be ok for fish too lol... they always seem to do very well though. now i know better and spending all this money and all this time, for the same results... guess lot to be said for those fairground fish....
only one i know that seems to have issues is an EX, who got a 10 gallon for her daughter, stuffed it full of tropical fish, then let her daughter feed them every 10 minutes lol.. eventually i had to explain to the kid why one day they had all died... poor thing, her excuse was, they looked hungry. tank sitting empty now, as she spent about $40 on those fish..
