Contact Author Fish Compatible with Goldfish Goldfish on their own kept properly do require lots of space, and common goldfish, comets and shubunkins cannot be kept with fancy goldfish. The reasoning behind this has mostly to do with the faster of the fish being able to eat all of the food before the slower, fancier varieties can get their needed share, but nipping can also be a factor, and something that fancier and slower goldfish are unable to avoid.
Telescope goldies probably should not be housed with any other kind of fish due to their fragile nature. You may try a couple of snails. There are, however, other types of freshwater fish that may be successfully housed with most other goldfish, as long as proper, partial water changes are regularly performed.
The main reasons people cite in defense of the theory that no fish can be kept with goldfish is different water temperature needs and the high waste level of goldfish. Goldfish are cold water fish, requiring a steady temperature of somewhere between 65 and 75 degrees.
Therefore goldfish are never compatible with any type of truly tropical fish, which of course require warm water temperatures. However, there are other coldwater fish, as well as subtropical fish, that do well with water temperatures in the sixties to low seventies.
Goldfish —no matter the variety- tend to produce a good deal of ammonia, which in a well balanced and cycled tank ultimately produces a good deal of nitrates. While not as harmful as nitrite or ammonia, nitrates are still toxic to fish, and partial water changes must be kept up with to keep nitrate levels low.
In an environment large enough and well maintained, tank mates selectively chosen from the subtropical and coldwater species can make good compatible tankmates for goldfish.
There are a couple of other considerations however, such as fin nipping, aggression, and other compatibility issues just as you would have in combining different types of tropical fish. Some fish not generally considered aggressive or fin nippers may still not interact well with goldfish, such as common plecos and possibly corydoras.
There is a good bit of anecdotal evidence to suggest that common plecos will take to sucking the slime coat off of goldfish, leaving them at risk for infection. This is a serious problem for goldfish and should not be risked.
Corydoras have been reported to do the same thing, though the anecdotal evidence is less abundant. Additionally corydoras are sensitive to certain common goldfish medications, and would need to be removed from goldfish tanks anytime those medications are being used.
Because of these reasons, common plecos and corydoras, or any other type of normally aggressive fish should never be chosen as tank mates for goldfish. The last thing to consider is that as goldfish grow larger, they will be able to eat many smaller fish.
This is reported to be a much less likely occurrence if they were raised with the smaller fish and are therefore used to them and not likely to consider them as food.
Nonetheless there is nothing to prevent a mature goldfish from changing its mind. With all of that in mind, some possible choices are listed below, but also keep that of course there are no guarantees. However, they need to be kept in groups of at least three, and -like goldfish- weather loaches require plenty of room.
Combining the two will require a large tank. Weather loaches do like to burrow, so keep in mind that smaller sized rounded gravel or a sand substrate will be needed. Picture by novacainstain on Flickr Rubbernose and Bristlenose Plecos Rubbernose or Bristlenose Plecos are also frequently recommended, and make good choices as well due to their voracious algae eating.
These plecos enjoy temperatures in the 72 to 77 degree range Do not, however, get the common pleco, which may be prone to sucking the slime coat from goldfish as previously mentioned. In fact, White Cloud Mountain Minnows can be kept in temperatures as low as 45 degrees, but no higher than 75 degrees.
A reader has commented that white cloud mountain minnows attacked his telescope goldies.
I don't think I'd keep anything with telescope goldies, other than perhaps a couple of snails, and should have mentioned that.
Picture by ewanr on Flickr Zebra Danios Zebra Danios have a temperature range between 65 and 80 degrees. These minnows make good choices, as long as the goldfish are not fancy.
The minnows will generally be fast enough to avoid hungry goldfish who mistake them for a snack, but too fast to allow a fancy goldfish a chance to eat. For pond keepers, Zebra Danios are also recommended for use in outdoor ponds. It is said that they enjoy eating mosquito eggs.
These subtropical barbs are not aggressive, and very similar to goldfish in appearance, but with a pink hue. All of the fish I have mentioned above other than the plecos will be most comfortable if kept in groups, so that must be taken into consideration.
Schooling or shoaling fish not kept in groups tend to become more aggressive than they would otherwise be. While Apple Snails and Ghost Shrimp are commonly recommended, there is also anecdotal evidence of these aquatic animals being eaten by goldfish. Ghost Shrimp can usually escape a hungry goldfish, but not always.
They may survive better with the fancy, slower goldfish, however, most ghost shrimp are sold as feeder shrimp, and therefore not usually given a great deal of care in the breeding.
This is why any fish store tank of ghost shrimp typically include a good number of dead specimens. By introducing ghosties to your tank, you may be introducing disease.Watch Nightclub bouncer pounds fresh young pussy on leslutinsduphoenix.com, the best hardcore porn site.

Weather Loaches, also known as Dojo loaches, are commonly recommended companions for goldfish, as they are coldwater fish themselves, requiring temperatures in the 60 to 75 degree range.
