Customer Question

Why do goldfish blow bubbles at the top of the bowl? Does it mean something? Are they hungry?

Goldfish blow bubbles at the top of the aquarium because thay are looking for more oxygen to breathe. If you don't have an air stone in the fish bowl I suggest you put one in as, by the fish's actions, they are asking for more air.
The blowing of bubbles is not related to the fish being hungry. So try the air stone and the bubble blowing should stop. Good luck.
