She kept them in there for about 3 years and then upgraded them to a 40 breeder. She posted this video right before she moved them to show how large they got in the 29 gal.

I also find a lot of goldfish tanks pretty bare. But you kinda have to in a tank like this. The substrate and decor take up a few gallons of water, knocking something like a 29 gal tank down to a 25 gallon tank. But it's also common with people who want a low-maintenance tank; poop is a lot easier to suck up when it gathers behind the only two ornaments in the tank. I know I will never have goldfish in a bare-bottom tank, tho. They LOVE playing in the sand; it's literally 40% of what I see them do on a daily basis. The other 50% is beg for food and that last 10% is graze the algae.

Do it! Do not resist goldfish! You cannot resist!! :D

You know, before I gave the two fish to him I was really worried. But he seemed like such a nice guy and brought his own bucket but also a battery powered air pump which really made me happy. He actually cares about the fish so I know they're going to someone who will enjoy them ^^ I'm really happy.

My little oranda is chilling in the 20g for now lol It's got these huge filters for one wittle fishie.

Do you think it's uncomfortable for the celestial bubble eyes to be like that? I don't really see a reason to give such extreme traits as bubble eyes and egg shaped bodies to bettas. Because they are so small, it wouldn't even be that noticeable unless you looked pretty close. The colors and fin types, however, are noticeable (and beautiful, IMO) even though the bettas are so small, so IMO they are worth breeding for...

At first Fluffy was like "whaa where are the other fishies!?" but he seems to be enjoying the extra space. I wanted to share a couple of pictures just because he's cute and I'm an obsessive fish mommy.


It's got my old filters on it, the two 40-60gal Tetra ones so there's definitely a lot of filtration. They have both been baffled cause they were throwing him around too much.
