I have been looking for large enameled goldfish bowls however it was difficult to obtain one domestically and it was way too heavy and expensive to be shipped internationally. So I ended up turning to FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) Bowls which recently have been more popular in Asia due to being lighter and less likely to chip or be broken during shipment. My relatives found a wholesale factory based in Shanghai that ships large quantities of FRP bowls to Fancy Goldfish stores in Japan. I asked them to purchase one for me since they live in Shanghai and ship it to me. I recently just got it and I love it! I think the total cost of this 40cm FRP bowl was $50. They told me that the factory also had these bowls in: 20, 30, 30 (shallow fry culling tray), 40, 45, 50, 60 and 65cm. Since Jippii is still relatively small I only got a 40cm.
When I brought my puppy to the vet about a month ago, I noticed a little fantail goldfish in a 1 gallon bowl on the reception desk. I didn't say anything to them at the time because my puppy was being difficult and I was too preoccupied. But since I was a new client, they sent me an online survey to fill out later. Perfect opportunity! At the end, there was a comments section, so I briefly explained why it's bad to keep goldfish in a bowl. I included links to my blog and YouTube channel if they wanted more information. Well to my great surprise, they actually took my advice very well and even took me up on my offer to help them set up a proper tank! They said everyone in the office had been watching my videos and were really interested in learning about goldfish! They called me and asked lots of questions about setting up the tank, and today I went over there to help them out. I brought some cycled biomedia from my established tank, an extra air pump I had, and a sample of Saki-Hikari food for them. They were so appreciative, and a couple of the staff members even talked about maybe setting up tanks in their homes now too! I'm really happy that now all their clients will see an example of a goldfish being properly cared for when they visit the vet office. Here are the things I brought for them. Here's how their tank looks now. It's only a 10 gallon, but they were open to upgrading to a larger tank in the future. And they know they shouldn't put any more fish in this 10 gallon tank. Their little fantail is so cute! Her name is Betsy.
