"It is remarkable the varied experiences that I see in the list here. My own goldfish experience is mixed, not so much due to what I did, but what I did NOT do. Never leave your fish with your 3 year old. He tore the tail of one and ate another... After that, the NEXT three year old manage to poison the one that survived. These were 11 cent comets that managed to get to 4 and then 6 inches in size. Fortunately no more three year olds and Zipper our latest goldfish is doing rather nicely after a bout with some parasites. She is about 8 inches in length after about 18 months. I think however I will soon need a larger tank. Contrary to what I have read, when I use de-ionized water, I NEVER clean the gravel or change the water. Tap water is an entirely different kettle of fish. Zipper constantly cleans the bottom gravel so it is remarkably clean. However I do find that I need to keep up with algae... That is about it."
