Fantail Goldfish--another favorite animal. When I worked at a pet store, a woman came in crying because she had recently lost a beloved goldfish due to old age. She was ready for a new one. I swear a goldfish swam up to her like a dog when called! She bought him! She was a goldfish whisperer. Some people just have an affinity with other species. Amazing!
If eating fish isn't your thing raise goldfish! They are hard to kill! Will tolerate most conditions without fuss, although gold fish need 2 feelings daily they aren't like other fish goldfish don't have stomachs to store food so it really just goes in and pushes the other right out great for aquaponics
