I love these fish however, I have had a hard time keeping them alive! I have had 5 of them. 2-Pac, Shorty, Busta, Spanky and Eminem. All of them died except Eminem. Em is about 4 inches long now and really fat. Its been about 1 and a half years now. People always comment on how ugly or cute or strange they look. I find them adorable !!!

I have kept bubble eye fishes and strongly recommend them to all fishkeepers. They are fascinating fish and give plenty of enjoyment. Have only had two problems:

1. Acquiring different coloured species

2. Bladder problems which result in dropsy and swimming problems.

I LOVE MY BUBBLE EYE GOLDFISH IS SO PEACEFUL AND CUTE. I JUST FEEL BAD ABOUT HIM BECAUSE HIS EYE SACS WILL SOON MAKE HIM UNABLE TO SWIM. HOWEVER I HOPE HE ENJOYS SWIMING NOW BEFORE IT HAPPENS.

hi there i love bubble eye gold fish when i went into walmart, i saw one little bubble guy all alone.i fell in love with him. hes white and so cute his name is bubble but. now hes got a sore so i have been putting med it fix to help him. my orange one is called tropica. i love him too. he got caught in a filter the other day and i hope he will be ok.if your bubble guy has a hard time eating, get those sinking granulars. they are food that sinks to the bottom and the fish eat it. i love my bubble fish and dont want to lose them. they really got cute personalities on them and i am really attached to them. wish i could just pet them. the only place that sells them here is walmart. no pet stores, very rare here.

Lydia, to be honest swimming upsidedown is a sign of swim-bladder disease. It is NOT fatal, but I reccomend treatment.

Lee, You can get either flakes or frozen foods, both of these sink to bottom quite fast

My experience with Bubble-eyes is that the bubble does grow back after being deflated. Typically, it will turn black as a sign that it is healing.

Our bubble eye (Nemo) lives in our pond. He has gotten his bubble stuck in the string algae several times this year. The first time I had to just cut the string it was so tightly wrapped. His bubble turned black and then deflated. It is now back to normal, just a few weeks later and he is as cute as ever.

I love bubble eye fish too but I got a bigger problem then getting his bubble stuck in the filter. It stuck twice, shrunk until not seen and then it grew back. But alas, it grew back twice the size. So my bubble eye is very healthy but the sacs have since grown so big that he cannot see properly. He cannot even breathe properly as the sacs keep obstructing his mouth, and most importantly, the sacs are too heavy for him. He can hardly swim and that means he has no strength to swim up for food. Guys, really appreciate if anyone out there got a remedy. I love my bubble eye and do not want him to die like that.
