This is our office fish, Hannibal. He started out with other fish, but within a couple weeks was the only survivor.

I know this is supposed to be funny but it’s really not. All the other fish died because they are kept in a very incorrect setup; they died a painful death due to ammonia poisoning and Hannibal will as well if he’s not moved to a proper home soon. Common goldfish like this one are pond fish and they are not supposed to be kept in a bowl. A little bit of research could have prevented these fish deaths.
For more information on why goldfish can’t be kept in bowls, check out this article. I hope you guys will consider rehoming Hannibal. There’s plenty of people with ponds who can take in a single goldfish.

I got a fish☻ I named him Cadbury♡

Hi! I’m sorry to tell you that a bowl is not a proper home for a goldfish; if you keep Cadbury in here permanently he will unfortunately die an early death. From the photo, I think he is a fancy (double tailed goldfish), which means he needs an aquarium of at least 20 gallons. Becauuse you can’t keep goldfish alone for extended periods of time, you’re looking at at least 40 gallons with heavy filtration. If Cadbury is actually a common (single tailed) goldfish, he is not suitable for life in any kind of aquarium, because common goldfish are pond fish.
The reason goldfish need so much room is that they grow very large and are very messy fish that produce a lot of waste. If you think you won’t be able to provide Cadbury with what he needs, please return him to the store!

Good luck!

And, my goldfish is a common, not twin tailed.

If he’s a common, he belongs in a pond! It’s no use to buy a bigger tank as he’ll just outgrow it.

I decided to get a spontaneous update video of Jey, Lupin, and Lobo.
Jey’s tail has easily doubled in length since he first came to me. Look at all that white now. Ahh I just love it. I tried to use my hand for a bit of size referencing, but Jey was like… no.
I wish the lighting showed their bronzy scale colors better. Lobo is doing well. His eye…wound is pretty much healed. poor baby. :c

You’ll notice a few bumps and tears here and there…. but that’s because they think it’s spring breeding time- much to my annoyance. Lupin especially has some raggedy fins this week. I apologize for the quality of the video- it’s so clear when playing on my laptop, but it looses so much quality when it hits the net.
The music also makes this video seem more eventful than it actually is haha.

THIS FUCKING GOLDFISH

Aww look at this precious moor baby. He deserves a good home in a huge tank/indoor pond instead of the cramped pet store display :(
