Although goldfish made their debut as pets over 2,000 years ago, their needs are not always understood by those new to fish-keeping. Because the average pet store goldfish is small and inexpensive, they are sometimes viewed as “beginner’s pets” that need little care. Add to this the fact that many people remember “Grandma’s goldfish that lived for years in a tiny bowl”, and it’s easy to see why most meet untimely ends (well-cared for goldfishes can live into their 20’s – and sometimes to twice that age!). Folks who buy a single goldfish usually do not want to be bothered with a filter, but the lack of filtration is by far the main reason for failure with these otherwise hardy fishes. However, there is a filter that needs no pad or carbon changes, and which becomes more effective with age – custom made for busy, “filter-shy” fish enthusiasts. Today we’ll take a look at it and other simple options that will lessen your workload and improve your goldfish’s quality of life. Read the rest of this article here:
