Goldfish - One Of The Most Common Type Of Pets In The World

Did you know that the goldfish are one of the  most common type of pets in the world? They were one of the first fish species to be kept in ponds by humans. By nature, goldfish are social creatures and prefer to live with other goldfish.

Many people think that goldfish are pets for someone who doesn't have much time for pet care. The lifespan of your goldfish depend upon how much care you provide goldfish.  If  cared for properly your goldfish could live for many years!

Goldfish start off small, but grow to be quite large, sometimes even a foot long, if you take good care of them. First time goldfish keepers usually buy a small tank or bowl to house their goldfish, only to discover that they need to keep buying ever-larger replacement tanks. You should buy a large enough tank at the beginning. You should provide a 20 to 30 gallon tank for your fish. Then add at least 10 gallons to that volume for each additional goldfish you might add. They grow large, excrete a lot of waste and need room to swim in order to be happy!

Food:    Goldfish like a diet of flakes, pellets, wafers and sticks

Goldfish Facts:
Do goldfish have ears? They have internal ear bones called an otolith that can feel vibrations. Avoid tapping on the glass since it will stress or even kill them.

A goldfish can survive in an outdoor pond where water temperatures dip down below 40*F (5*C). Some ponds might even freeze over during the winter and the goldfish still survive through to the spring.

Hey, animal lovers. How are ya? I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jenny and I am the mother of a 2 year old GSD named Rex. He is a bit aggressive but he is well trained and has protected my family from intruders at least once. Only problem is that he sheds a lot but Furminator takes care of that.
Oh and here is something for good karma. I usually buy Furminators for me and my friend's dogs on Ebay but I found this awesome person that sells them at reasonable prices and the best part is that he offers FREE LIFETIME REPLACEMENT!!! I asked him and he said yes, if it breaks just send it back and he will send you a brand new one.

Here is the link - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230643235621&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT

Oooohhhhhh one more thing. I found a baby kitten a few days ago and I am taking care of her till she gets old enough but I may have to put her up for adoption if I can't handle two pets. Can anyone provide me with a list of no kill shelters?

Thanks.

Hi Jenny! I could not figure out what kind of dog Rex is. What is "GSD". It's always nice to have a good guard dog!

I will pass on your Ebay address for Furminators.

If you will let me know where you live, I can look up some no kill shelters for you. Email me at thepettreehouse@yahoo.com.

Thanks for your comment!
