Description: 90 gallon freshwater aquarium houses 3 happy goldies. Running a Fluval FX5 that pumps about 600 gallons per hour, which is about 300 gph less than what I should have. 2 baskets hold Biomax, and the third holds 2 filter pads from an older, established filter, and 3 water polishing pads. 2 bubble walls keep the oxygen level up, and a regular light gives them the ability to not bump into the sides.
Advice: Research! Even if you think someones claims (such as the required 10 gallons per goldfish) seem illogical and crazy, if a bunch of aquarium nuts agree, it's probably right. But always search for a second opinion!
Fish Kept: 3 goldish
1 Male Common
1 Male Fantail
1 Pearlscale (gender tbd)
Corals/Plants: All fake. My guys eat the real stuff.

About Yourself: I got into keeping goldfish when I was 15 (now 19) as a school project. When the project was over I wanted to save the cute little feeders from the mouth of a hungry Oscar, so I convinced my mom to let me bring them home. I lost 3 because I had no idea what I was doing, and soon found a great message board to help. I made the mistake of not taking people's advice at first, and probably lost at least 10 of my first fiish to pure stubborness. Last year I had to go away to school, and when I returned I only had 2 of the 7 goldfish I had when I left. I have since purchased a cute little crowned pearscale. The best advice to anyone who wants any type of pet is know what you want and how to take care of it before you invest yourself. You will save a LOT of money.
