About Goldfish Book Description:

Goldfish care is surprisingly easy, yet most Goldfish die within twelve months of their purchase. They can live a long time, 20 years for pond fish is not uncommon. Goldfish are undemanding endearing pets that thrive when 5 simple care rules are followed. These rules are buy healthy fish and quarantining them properly, make large regular water changes, feed them a nourishing diet based on their natural foods, give them enough room, and don’t mix incompatible varieties. This 280+ page eBook is the result of decades of hands-on experience and covers every aspect of Goldfish care, breeding, and diseases, and is based on these 5 rules. The Book is sorted into handy sections with a Table of Contents with clickable links so you can quickly find what you are looking for. The Book Contents Section 1 – Overview, History, Care, Selection and Anatomy A quick overview of the Goldfish; where it came from, some basic information on the different physical attributes possible and their basic environmental needs is covered. Goldfish have been cultivated for a thousand years and during that time moved from China their homeland to first Japan and then progressively across Europe. If you want your Goldfish to be disease free and contented, here you will find some basic care guidelines that need to be followed. Selecting healthy fish to buy from a pet shop is almost impossible but here you learn how to treat them during the quarantine period. You need to be familiar with the external and internal parts of a Goldfish so you know when something is not normal. Section 2 – Aquariums, Filters and Plants Aquariums come in a variety of shapes and materials. Depending on what the primary use of your aquarium will be should guide you on the best one to purchase. There is a huge variety of filters available. One of the most important aspects of filter purchase is getting one of the appropriate size for your setup. If the wrong plants are used in a Goldfish aquarium you will find just stalks left by the next morning. Section 3 – How and What to Feed Goldfish Feeding Goldfish is one of the most important parts of Goldfish care. The fancier the variety, the more important it is that their diet doesn’t cause digestive problems such as swim bladder disorder. Section 4 – Common Diseases and Dangers This section covers fungal, bacterial and parasitical diseases and covers 14 of the more common diseases. Section 5 – Commonly Available Goldfish Varieties Although there are well over 100 varieties of goldfish, there are only 12-13 that are commonly available in Europe and America. Each variety has its own special needs. Learn which varieties can and shouldn’t be mixed together. Section 6 – Breeding Goldfish and Raising Fry Many enthusiasts breed their fish; few raise any to adulthood. Once you have successfully spawned your Goldfish, the book details how to avoid parasite infestation and the best and easiest food to prepare and feed your fry is explained. Section 7 – Live Food Cultures To be successful raising Goldfish from fry to adult requires culturing live foods, especially when the fry are under a month old. One of the easiest live foods to grow is brine shrimp which is ideal as a first food for fry. Section – 8 Ponds, Filters and Clarifiers Installing a Goldfish pond can be a large commitment. There are many decisions to be made before work starts. Location is one of the most important, as is filter selection. Even heavily filtered ponds will go green because most pond filters can’t filter out suspended algae. A UV clarifier can provide crystal clear water all year round. Learn how to calculate what size clarifier you need for your pond (or aquarium).
