Depending on the tropical fish being grouped with your goldfish, sometimes you’ll experience negative results and at other times you won’t (as you mentioned). But ideally, you’ll want to keep your goldfish in a separate aquarium with other goldfish of the same type. Yes, it is possible to have goldfish live many years in a tropical tank, but it isn’t ideal. And some people do run into problems when keeping goldfish together with tropical fish (though this isn’t always the case).

Buyers might be eager to purchase a number of tropical fish, but they should exercise control in their purchases. Adding too many fish to a tank all at once can have dire effects on the water quality and health of the fish. Instead, it’s better to slowly increase tank population without exceeding total capacity. Additionally, it’s important to learn the proper procedure for adding new fish to an aquarium. This will help fish adapt to their new environment without becoming stressed or shocked. Buyers looking for live tropical fish can start by searching the eBay stores and auction listings.

Tropical fish with all their beautiful colors, shapes and sizes can be great fun to watch, and are a popular pet for people all ages. However, anyone that keeps fish for any period of time will eventually have to deal with "ich". Ich (pronounced ick) is the most common disease of all freshwater and marine aquarium fish. Many hobbyists consider this disease to be just a common nuisance but the reality is that ich is probably responsible for more fish deaths than just about any other disease. There are several effective treatments for ich, but if they are not administered correctly, they can cause serious problems with your fish and tank inhabitants. Good filtration is beneficial to all fish and an absolute requirement in most cases. A combination of mechanical (sponge media to catch debris), chemical (carbon) and biological (beneficial bacteria media) is recommended. Most filtration systems have this combination. The quality of the water in your tank can have drastic effects on your fish. Over feeding or too many fish in the tank can cause a spike in ammonia that may make your fish ill. We offer water testing and advice on how to keep your tropical fish healthy and water clean. We can also offer guidance on treating fish that are showing signs of illness.
