I agree with you all. Another one of my LPS (you don't know how many we have around here) has feeder goldfish. I can't stand it. The rest of the fish (especially bettas) have decent homes but the goldfish are all cramped in a 20 gallon. There are usually 70-80 in there and there is no decor. Just a filter and an airstone and a bunch of dead ones.
I'm getting them this weekend. I will buy 4 or 5 of them and they will go in a ten gallon with a hood. I will feed them normal fish food, just in powder form. I will also give them freeze dried brine shrimp. I feel like I am saying an oath or somethingLOL. The tank will have a light. It will not have any gravel but will be stocked with plants. It will not have a filter but water will be changed every day. there will also be an airstone. Water conditioner will be used.
A FEW WEEKS LATER: The tank will have gravel and a gentle filter. I might buy a few more plants. There diet will change to normal fish food. The rest will be the same as above. Oh, and I will test the water every day when i first get them and every week once they are stronger and healthier.
Does anyone see any flaws within my plan? If so, please tell me!
Edit: I forgot, since they're so tiny, will it be safe to treat them if they have any sickness? Or will the medicine just kill them?
