She seems to be happy as a clam! She is to busy looking for food! I have had two goldies before and there was always food aggression. I hated it.
Eyeris eats so slow. She knows where to find her food. I feed her in the same spot each time but she can take her time and I know she is getting enough.
She tried the Marimo Ball a couple of times but didn't pursue it after that. Not to her taste I guess.
She would rather just order him around.
When I got her she was in a tank by herself. It was the Java Moss tank. It was full of the moss. There was absolutely nowhere for her to swim.
She was returned because she was sold as a Panda then changed to orange. I guess the Java Moss tank was the only place they had to put her.
She was also pretty floaty.
So now with room to swim and being able to get to the bottom it is just forage, forage, forage all the live long day. I really think she is just to darn busy to be lonely.
Side note on the Marimo. If I see she is starting to eat it I will take it out. I have had it for over a year and a half. It is the last of three. My other goldfish devoured the other two.
