With goldfish it's generally something in their gene pool. They're pretty hardy fish which is why a lot of people will use them to cycle a tank.

Me too :< Comets and commons especially. Fancy types are usually a bit healthier but pet store fish... you never really know what you're getting. All my fish are pet store fish.

Yeah; bowls, over stocked tanks, mixed with warm water tropicals or other things. My goldfish are kept at 70 so low end tropical for my pleco and they seem happy.

The Pleco part is probably a bad idea.

It's an albino bristle nose so it stays very small and doesn't produce much waste.

Four inches in a 55 gallon tank, not too worried about it. Everyone is happy and water levels are good.
