spotty delight hangs low
My Shubukin is a spotty friendly little goldfish. When he joined the tank with my Comet goldfish he seemed just fine. The Petsmart fish consultant said that he looked healthy, but now he is hanging around low in the corner of my tank. I'm worried that he could die. I've only had him one day and he is already not looking very well.

Very, very nice fish.
I bought this one I have now to get along with my Comet goldfish I rescued from a tiger barb tank. I have no idea what they were thinking. Since goldfish don't like to be alone, I decided he needed a roomy to keep him company. The two get along great. My Shubunkin seems to be more of the bully of the two, but they're a match made in heaven. I have 3 fantail types in another tank, and those two will never meet them. I wouldn't put the straight fins in with fantails. I had Shubunkin goldfish in the past and they all did well.

I normally stay away from goldfish (there just not my type..lol), but I saw a little guy with one eye, and I figured, "Why not?" My kids named him Cyclops, and it just kind of stuck. He's got quite a personality for such a little fish. He casually swims around, but once the food comes around, he's all splishy-splashy. I bought some Koi friends named Noodles and Sushi, and all three get along great.
