Hello to all! This is my first time here!

I am posting this question on behalf of a friend of mine. She really wants to have baby goldfich, but she hasnt been able to find anything on breeding feeder goldfish....do the rules apply to them as they do all of the other kinds of goldfish??

Thanks so very much!

No they don't feeder fish need alot more room then fancy goldfish i

would say that your friend will have a better chance breeding her

feeder fish in a pond then in a aquarium.

Feeder fish need at least a 40 gallon id say for 2 fish to breed.

thanks black oranda!

I am afraid that she is saddened now! She likes the aquarium! Doesnt have the room for a pond of that size!

hopefully we can find her something she can afford and enjoy as well as she does her feeder goldies!

Are you sure? 40 gallon pond isn't so big.If you want something

big enough and cheap i would get a rubbermaid storage bin

buy a filter and add that to it,but it will have to be at least 40 gallons (no more because anything bigger then 40 gallons the rubbermaid bows,it will be able

to house 2 feederfish (commets/common) )

The rubbermaid she cost 5 to 10$ (possibly lower in the U.S.A,and a filter should cost about 25 $ to 35$ once again it's possibly lower in the U.S.A)

Another good thing to think about is where's all the fry going to go when there older? don;t plan on giveing them to a fish store/pet store because they will sell them as feeder fish (feeder fish are sold to get eaten by other big tropical fish ... im sure you wouldn't want that to happen)
