These Pleco's Just those that you see Rubber-nose, Bristle-Nose are good for goldfish they only get to 4-5" in length. I wouldn't place them there if they were bad, believe me. Those are fish that are good for goldfish this is why they are called Compatible fish :D

Common Pleco's are bad.....They get to big and aggressive :(

Definitely no on the african dwarf frogs. For one, they are tropical. For another, they are very passive and shouldnt have any fish in with them so theyre able to get their food. And finally, they stay so small that goldfish would gobble them up in a second. Sorry, just not a good idea.

African Dwarf Frogs and goldfish together in the same tank are a big no no. The dwarf frogs are very placid and it takes them a while to find their food. These guys can easily die of starvation if you don't keep a real good check on them. They are also tropical and very much prefer warmer waters. Its over all best to just keep them with other Dwarf Frogs and no fish at all.

I have seen Clawed frogs in with goldfish. I've never kept them so I couldn't tell ya too much...

I saw a post here just the other day about a clawed frog that attacked a goldfish. Personally, I would'nt add anything with my goldfish. I don't even like the idea of snails.

I keep the tank clean myself by once a week vacuuming the gravel, partial water changes and scraping the algae. It doesn't take long and it is part of having fish.

:lol
