Re: Mixing Goldfish with Tropical Fish
Gold fish are huge mess makers, and can spoil the water in a 10 gallon fast. and as lexus said they get too large for a 10 gallon. bort you are right that goldfish only get as large as the tank allows, which is really bad for the fish. it stunts growth, and i've heard the organs of goldfish keep growing while the outside doesn't, eventually killing the fish.
there are different kinds of goldfish that dont like cooler waters. all goldfish shouldnt be lumped together.
