We will be putting two Fancy Goldfish in the tank. Fancy Goldfish eat flake and/or pellets. To boost overall health you can give the fish supplements of fresh vegetables. The fish need a water temperature of 64- 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Their max size is 6 inches. Fancy Goldfish like fine gravel for sifting and arrangements of driftwood and rock decorations.


The decorations being used are rock cave, tall driftwood, and volcano bubbler.
