You are fabulous. Outstanding information. I am actually looking for a good home for Chubby, because those guys drive her crazy. She hides in the rocks to escape, then she gets stuck and I come to the rescue. Do you think she would be happy going from a big pond to a smaller 20 gallon tank. And what about fish friends. No, I am not crazy, but I have observed some pretty interesting behavior. Should she be only with fantails or just females of any colony fish?I am a Registered Nurse and LOVED Biology. If I could have two lives I would become a Biologist.Thank you again for your help.Anita
Chubby is doing fine. we are looking for a good home for her and have decided to look for a new pond for the other goldfish (deep orange with ling tails) about 4-5 inches each. For now no more spawning: thank heavens. The Koi are the polite nice fish and never bothered Chubby. Do Koi tolerate other species more than other fish?
Also, do fish enjoy the company of other fish or prefer to be solitary? Especially Fantails?
Thanks for checking back.
