Goldfish

Fish

Goldfish, like all animals, need five things to be healthy and happy:

Diet logo - a bowl of pet food Diet (the right food)

Behaviour logo - a dog's paw print Behaviour (being able to behave normally)

Companionship logo - a person with a cat and a dog Companionship (avoiding loneliness)

These are called the five welfare needs. Under the Animal Welfare Act (2006) all owners need to provide these five things for the pets they keep. The sections below give information on how to meet the five welfare needs for goldfish.
