At the end of July we moved in a new house, which meens… very heavy tank to transport!! The goldfish tank was very easy to move, althowgh 2 goldies didn’t make it because of the stress. I have now 4 goldfish in my tank: a big black moore, a red cap, an orange/white common goldfish and a white telescope eye from last year Tarta Beach in Italy.
Here a quick picture to the goldie tank and since I am add it, also the cats and dog sleeping!!
In my 180 liter tank 100x50x40cm I keep 6 goldfish
The impulse to keep goldfish as pet was came by reading a book about the Japanese culture. They were, together with Chinese, the fist to keep goldfish in the house as a pet. At the time it was more a decoration rather than pet keeping, this because the fish were in more cases in small ceramic vase so the contrast to the white ceramic emphasise the red color of the fish. These days is not the rule but you can still find such keeping in Japan.
So I decided to give my fish Japanese names.
