The size of your goldfish’s tank will affect its growth to an extent, but there are other factors to consider, like the fish’s diet and cleanliness of its environment. Depending on the species and
What do Goldfish Eat and How Long do They Live?
In the wild, goldfish are omnivores, eating aquatic vegetation, frogs, newts, fish eggs and insect larvae. Pet goldfish do well with goldfish foods made especially for either the indoor or the outdoor environments. These are flakes and pelleted goldfish foods, plus the supplements of specialised foods and plants to complete the diet.
Despite the popular myth that goldfish die
At Pets Galore we keep a large variety of "common" and "fancy" goldfish. Common varieties include Comets, Shubunkins, Uncoloured, Fantails,
The Siamese fighting fish, or Betta, is a vibrantly-coloured fish often seen swimming solo in brandy sniffers and ornamental vases in both the office and home.
The Betta got its name from an ancient clan of warriors, called the "Bettah." The fish were given a combatant name after the fighting fish became popular in the mid 1800's. In fact, the sport became so renowned in Thailand that the former King of Siam had it regulated and taxed! Spectators of the sport based their bets on the bravery of the fish, rather than the damage inflicted by the victor.
Now a days there is a huge variety of shapes, colours and fin structures in Betta's. We keep a large variety in store and receive new stock regularly, come and visit and check out what's new in store. When you are looking through the aquarium there is a male fighter in each aquarium that has a blue tag on that aquarium stating "there is a male fighter in this aquarium". If you are looking for a particular colour and variety combination just ask we can request anything for you.
Betta's have upturned mouths and primarily feed on the water's surface. A good diet consists of a huge variety of treats, including dried, frozen and live options, such as blood-worms, brine shrimp, daphnia and tubiflex worms. Now a days there is a good variety of dry mixes made particularly for the Betta fish, these are dried flakes and pellets. Use these as a base diet. This combinations will improves the Betta's brilliant colouring and longevity.
Betta's, unlike other species, are not schooling fish and will fight with each other, but only the males. You can keep multiple females together and even with a male, just be careful as either gender can be strong willed in hormonal times. Betta's do love to have an combination of plants and ornaments to create a comfortable place to hide or have as their "spot". Aquatic caves or dense, planted corners work great in making a Betta feel safe.
Keeping Australian Natives as an aquarium fish has become extremely popular. One of the popular elements is that many species grow very quickly and then become individual "pets" in the aquarium.
Varieties that we keep in store are Archer Fish, Australian Bass, Barramundi, Butis Butis, Murray Cod, Pearch (spangled, golden and silver), Purple Spotted Gudgeons and Tandanus Catfish. Yabbies, crayfish and marron (just a different name depending on where they are from in Australia) are available through out the year.
We do keep a local "feeder" yabbie all year round, some of the colours available are extremely striking. We can get in any Australian natives available within Australia, just ask. Also remember with Australian Natives they are not always available all year round, just ask what we have at any particular time. We can also let you know when they come available.
At Pets Galore we keep a huge assortment of many freshwater fish in stock everyday. Families such as:
