"I've owned goldfish for 8 years now, and I enjoyed my two Ryukin very much. These fish are absolutely adorable, with their round bodies and stubby tails. They don't swim very well because of their bizzare shape, so definitely do not house them with more active goldfish like commons. The two of them lived happily in a 30 gallon tank and the only issues I ever had were swim bladder problems and green algae blooms. Swim bladder problems are reasonably easily fixed by feeding the fish thawed shelled green peas. Algae blooms can be solved with a dose of algae killer and a water change. Ryukin are extremely hardy and I managed to keep them alive with a 50% water change once a month, though of course I wouldn't recommend doing so. Great for the beginner and enjoyable for all experience levels! Unfortunately, both my fish, after living with me for 3 years, were killed within 24 hours by a white, weblike fungus that overtook their tank and ate out their gills. These are lovely fish and I would definitely recommend them!!"
