Actually, it's not thriving at all. A one gallon bowl is about 30 times too small. Any of the more trusted sites will advise that ANY goldfish needs at least a 30 gallon tank in order to thrive. And another 10g per additional goldfish. I would recommend that you make the upgrade ASAP. If you're in an area near a Petco, their $1/gal
sale is going on or upcoming depending on your location. Upon doing so, I'm sure you will notice a bit different behavior for the better. You'll also need some type of filtration and a test kit for your water. Test kit should be the liquid and not the strips. As well, you'll need a water conditioner such as either Seachem or API products.
