Hi, I am a new goldfish owner, as my relative bought a baby black moor and kept it in a goldfish bowl, not taking care of it, I angrily took over care for him and put him in a 10 gallon i had, but i knew i needed to upgrade, i just now bought him a 29 gallon.
he's a little over 2 inches long including tail, i'm using a Tetra Whisper EX45 Power Filter with 240 GPH
flow rate. and a small bubble wall. I just upgraded him today from a 10 gallon tank. So i have my old Topfin10 HOB
filter on it too for now.
Is this a good set up for him? Iím going to need to do weekly water changes, correct?
I also have one main problem with him, i've had him for 2 months now and heís doing great but I think he struggles eating, he seems to never see the food when I put it in the tank but I see him nibble on the ground so i assume he gets the food eventually from the ground. I started with flakes but then tried floating granules, that didn't work, they were way too big and then heard about swim bladder disease, so stopped using those. Then yesterday i bought small sinking granules, hoping that will work best, or if anyone has any suggestions?
One last question.. iím sorry.. lol.. Would i ever be able to add another (visually challenged) goldfish to this tank? or is it too small?
