Goldfish - Company

Do goldfish need company?


Goldfish are social animals so should be kept together. 

How many goldfish can I keep?


It’s important not to keep too many goldfish together, as this can cause bullying and water pollution because of overcrowding. 

As a general rule of thumb, for coldwater fish like goldfish you can keep 0.5cm of fish per litre of water in the tank.


Who should care for my goldfish if I go on holiday?


If you go away, you should leave your goldfish in the care of a trusted friend or neighbour.
