  1. that's probably because the water doesn't contain chlorine, or chloramines, or very low amounts of it. where in VN are you?Also, given that it's only 20 gallons, you are better off filling it up. I live in Ho Chi Minh city, I'm still in college. It was last yeat,first time I bought my oranda at my local pet shop I did ask them if I have to treat the water but they told me that I didn't have to. You know I'm newbie and I believe in them and it turned out to be true. I feel guikty saying this but I didn't have a tank back then I let little oranda lived in a container about 13gal and I always do 100% water changing with untreated tap water and he has been doing fine. It's been almost a year until I bought a tank last month and I moved him in new tank.
  2. I asked my cousin to buy it for me cuz he will return from the States this May. ^^ btw I live in Viet Nam. It is strange that all fish at my local pet shops can live in tap water @@.
  3. I consider buying a water testing kit but it is too expensive at my local pet shop, so I have not bought any yet. But I've been doing frequent water changing and observing my fish' s behaviors.
  4. Thank you for your help, it is really hard to ask for advice at the pet store bcuz some of them do not know much about goldfish and I have to search for information on the internet. Even the owner of the pet shop that I often buy from tell me it's ok to place more than 5 goldfish in my tank
  5. Yes, I thought about the bladder issues too, that's why I only have my tank 3/4 filled but since I saw lots of fully-filled tank so I think I should bring this up so I could get advice from you guys. ^^ How big is your tank...dimensions? How many fish do you have in that tank? And, do they have swim bladder or floating issues? The reason I ask is that by lowering the level of water you are decreasing the volume of water available to the fish which will increase the concentration of waste products. If your fish is healthy, then I think it would be more advantageous to fill the tank to the top. I have 2 tanks: 1st one is 60x30x40 (cm) for my telescope and oranda , 2nd one is 50x30x35 for 3 little lionhead. ^^ They are doing fine and they love to swim around my hand.

  7. Yah, I've been asking my self this question since I started my first tank, but these are only recommendations from some guys on the internet and the information is not yet confirmed.
  8. Hi guys, I'm new to goldfish keeping, I've just started 20 gallon tank forsome goldfish and I really want to know more about the water level in the tank. I've read some articles about it and some recommends that it should be between 15 to 20cm to give the fish less water pressure and nice tail, but I saw lots of video on youtube of some tanka fully filled .So which one is better ?
