Hello everyone! Ive been lurking on this forum for a month or so, and have made a few posts, but im just now introducing myself. Im 16, and a Junior in high school. A few months ago i got off to an admittedly bad start with fish keeping. I Impulsively bought a Goldfish without doing any research whatsoever. As i was walking home with him, i realized it might be a good idea to learn a bit about my new pet. Unfortunately, all I had at home was a 2.5 gallon bowl with no filter... i did some research that night and realized how badly i messed up. 😂 I did a water change immediately and the next day I bought a 10 Gallon tank for cheap, along with a filter. Knowing it still wasnt good enough,and that i needed to upgrade asap, but that it was at least an improvement. My Goldie, Jasper, immediately perked up. Hes very small right now, about an inch and a half, not including his tail, and hes a beautiful fantail. Ive since upgraded to a 29 gallon tank and am considering getting him a friend. So thats my story so far, and now im hooked.

Ok is you have been lurking you know we like to see pics.

Goldfish is a pretty generic term. What kind of goldfish?

Goldfish are beautiful and fun aqua creatures to have, but yes take lots of water space and filtration.

Thank you all for your responses! I will certainly post some pics as soon as I get home tonight! I currently have 2 juvie fancy goldfish. Jasper, my gold Fantail, and Monty, my new Black moor. I got Monty from my Brother, who got him but had a Sub-Par living arrangement. Theyre both very happy in their 29 gallon and im in the process of converting their old 10 gallon into a community tank, i have a build thread for that here:

10 gallon community tank build

All in all im excited to be diving deeper into the hobby and watching my fish thrive.

Pics to come!
