    Thank you! They are growing like crazy! They've already doubled in size.

    Large water changes are your friend. I don't care what the pet store guy said, change 70-90% of your water once a week and buy an API test kit and learn to use it. Until you learn to sniff test or effectively observe your fish, you need the information!

    Hi there! Thanks for the recommendation! I have already made a video about this, it is included in my "Why Water Changes?" video. :)

    I guess now you could also go into breeding goldfish. I would never recommend a beginner just dive into breeding. I have so many new people come up to me saying I want to be a breeder and have only been in the hobby a month or less.

    I watched your fish room update video @ 3:50 you give away your age. How many years experience did you tell me you had? Did you say 18?

    Yes, almost 19 now. I got my first goldfish when I was 2 years old, the fantail, Johnny. He was the one that lived 14 years. He is the reason I am where I am today :)
