My boyfriend bought me a fantail when he asked me to senior prom. We had "joint custody" of it when I went to college an hour away. I took it back this summer and read that they are communal fish so I tried to buy him a small red hooded one for a friend. The new fish was undetectably sick and died a few days later. About 4 days later, my prom fish died. Just a word for the wise, shop around before you add goldfish to your existing ones- visit the place you buy them from a few times and check to make sure none of the fish in their tank are ill.

Beng a beginner with aqariums,I purchased a Ryukin,and a Fantail.
I had no idea how fast these fish would grow!!!
I had originally placed each sepeately in 2 gallon tanks.Within weeks both were growing too fast and are now together in a 10 gallon aquarium.
I love them both and wish to breed them eventually.
Thanks for all the helpful info this site offered.
