I own a few goldfishes in a 4m aquarium in the living room. They are so damn cute, wiggling their tail on the surface each time anyone come close to the aquarium, waiting for treats. but imagine facing that each time you get to the living room. sometimes it gets me annoyed. is goldfishes always act like that? how much is enough for them?

Yeah, i think they never feel full. As suggested, I'm preparing more fish food and treats. They are so cute, i enjoy taking care of them. Sometimes it lets me to get relaxed, watching them swim beautifully and act greedy in front of treats. They are honest to themselves.

hi shaqziad Before I own goldfishes in my aquarium. goldfish are really greedy in nature. this is one of their characters. goldfish nearly eats all stuff which they can swallow. just be careful not to overfeed them as they can die in overfeeding.

Is it so? I never knew. that is why they keep wanting for more. i will try to feed them as much as they want, but not overfeeding them. Maybe I'll increase the times per day to feed them to 4 times per day. thanks for your info!

Thanks a ton for your discussion. Glad to hear about the goldfishes and how much u have fun watching them. It is always great to watch fishes getting involved in their activities selflessly. It just gives u an immense pleasure and solace as they symbolize patience and flow. i think it is not their fault and u should change your mindset regarding this. What say?

Are you saying i should not be annoyed, as it is the nature of the fishes to eats? Maybe i'll do that. i am concern if i did not give them enough food. that will be me torturing the cute fishes.
