MY Husband and I got a bubble-eye goldfish for a little over a year and his name is Bubbles cuz of his bubbly head. When we first got him in his tank he turned black for the longest time and that started to scare us , we did not know what was up we thought that he was going to die. We waited for a couple of weeks to see if he was going to get better and to our suprise he is a bubbly orange goldfish we have him in the tank with an alge eater and they are fine just get a big alge eater to put in the tank (it eats up the small alge eaters).

Now Bubbles has a very unique personality to him. He floats on his back with his head towards the bottom and his belly up out of the water,he will suck on your finger if you stick it in the water and he knows when it is feeding time he will come to the top of the tank and wait for you to feed him.

I just got 2 bubble-eyed gold fish about a week ago. I named them Bagpipe and Moe. When i went to the petstore i was debating about even getting a fish at all and then i saw them. They fit my personality so well i just could'nt say so. They are so easy to take are of and so fun to watch.

I just got my first bubble-eyed goldfish. I have named him Buddha. He is adorable. I thoroughly enjoy watching him swimming around and running into the glass. It's hilarious.

I have only had my Bubble eye for a few weeks, but he is so cute. I have him in my dorm romm in college, and I fell in love with him the first time I saw him. He keeps me company. I talk and sing to him, and he likes it. His name is Simon.

I adore Bubbleyes, but they are so vulnerable. The first thing you must always do is protect them from getting sucked up to the filter with their bubble sacs. I have found the best thing for that is to cover the filter tube with a piece of panty hose secured with a rubberband. I had it happen one time and luckily caught it in time, detached the bottom of the tube, brought it to the surface and put my finger inside the tube and slowly and gently pushed the sac back thru. That will never happen again!

I have only had my bubble fish for a while and she is doing well. she is very social. she has easily and quickly adapted to her new environment. She is hardy and is a good pet to keep me company. I highly recommend this fish!

My favorite type of goldfish. Our current bubble-eye, "Bubbles", has been with us for about a year and a half now, but he hasn't grown past about 2 inches. These fish may be difficult as beginner fish, but as long as you make sure to have an appropriately sized filter and avoid any decorations with even remotely sharp edges, you should be able to keep their eyes safe from harm as we have.

Our bubble eye named Bubbles got sucked into the gravel cleaner and his bubble deflated and his eye looked like a black eye. It took awhile but the bubble grew back and is now the same as the other eye again. I can't even tell which eye was damaged, but he doesn't swim so close to my gravel washer anymore. These fish don't do well with other types of fish as they cannot compete for food, since they can't see or swim very well. Also I have had other fish that seemed to pick on him alot so he's got his own tank now.
