I have a small tank, a bigger one, some food, water cleaning liquids, and filters and bubblers and shit for the big one. dont know if ill ever get around to cleaning and using the big tank because its an old one from a friend and its dirty as your moms pussy.

    Just change the water every day. Feed once per day. He will be okay for a really long time.

        Sounds about good, only feed a fish as much as he can eat in a few seconds. If you nltice his stomach becoming dented you are feeding too little, if he leaves uneaten food he gets too much food.

    >get large, heavy duty plastic tub
    >bury it in your backyard and fill it with water and gravel and shit
    >toss in some floater plants
    When you're really pimp
    >install a filter somehow

    You got yourself a redneck pond, without a filter you might change the water here and there but I doubt a single goldfish will outpoop the floater plants

    Goldfish are eating a shitting machines so ammonia levels are going to increase rapidly, I would recommend daily change of waters until your tank is cycled. The fish grows accordingly to the tank, if it doesn't have space it won't grow much, you don't need a 75g tank. Clover oil is use to euthanize fish.

    For any additional question refer to the general /aqg/. Good luck.

    Get some clove oil and pour it into the tank. Makes the tank instantly good for goldfish in tiny bowls. Good luck.

        Lmfao ignore this moron OP, it does no such thing. Clove oil is a fishy miracle product that magically makes tiny bowls with no filtration safe for goldfish.

    Yeah what they expect is for you to kill the fish in a few months. It's a huge commitment and one of the worst starter fish, up to you if you want to make it.

        You keep repeating that and you will keep getting the same answer. Its going to die quickly and no one fricking cares if you got it from a fair or a latrine. Idk what else you want from us.

          well it seems like i was dumb to accept the fish without knowing anything about it, and the carnival is even dumber for giving these things out to people like me who dont know anything or don't care.

            It happens. Goldfish are like Bettas. So many that people don't care. To most people they are basically like novelty items, not animals.

        They actually live like one to two decades - koi are the ones that do multiple decades - and can live (albeit stunted growth) in a 20 gallon "long" in a pinch, though 40g breeder is probably best for its whole life. You probably don't have furniture that can hold the ~350lbs a filled 40g aquarium weighs, but maybe one that can hold a 20g, if you want to keep it.

        If you do keep it, add some sand, water dechlorinator, a two-outlet air pump, a sponge filter, an air powered moving bed filter (Google it), Malaysian trumpet snails, and duckweed or water lettuce (floating plants). Those things plus a weekly 25% water change (always dechlorinate all water before it enters the tank) and low volume feeding (they only need like 1-2 goldfish pellets per day for an adult, scaled down for smaller) will give your fish a good chance to live a full life though likely will max at out only 3-4" rather than 5-6" in that size tank.

        As other anons said, they're literally feeder fish Tha cost less than a quarter at big box stores. They're given out at fairs because of that, plus the fact they are stupid tough and will survive bad treatment until the carny can move them to some sucker who paid $5/3 tries to win a $0.20 fish.

        you don't need a 75 that's insane, a 30 long is plenty for a single goldfish. even better get a decent sized stock tank and keep the fish outdoors.

    God I hope you're baiting. Goldfish normally live around 35 years and need a 75 gallon tank. If you keep it in this small one it'll die in a few months.

      not baiting. they cant seriously expect the people who win these at fairs to buy 75 gallon tanks and all that gear right?

        goldfish are bred by the millions as disposable feeder animals

        If it lived for that long you’d have no reason to go back to the fair. It’s a scheme by Big Fair to keep you on their leash.
