JBL Goldfish Paradise®

Goldfish aquarium type JBL Goldfish Paradise®

This aquarium is a beautiful home for eight lively veiltail/fantail Goldfish! The fish become tame within a short time and will eat out of your hand. Veiltails/Fantails are very attractive fish and are very popular with children.

Goldfish and their various breeds, such as veiltails/fantails, belong to the most popular fish of all! Children and adults love their lively motion and their peaceful nature. Goldfish can be easily kept and are relatively undemanding. But they shouldn’t be kept in a too small aquarium and certainly NOT in round bowls. According to the German animal protection act this is not even allowed. But in aquariums of about 100 cm length smaller veiltail/fantail goldfish will feel very comfortable and grow healthily. Even if goldfish regard plants as food, the Anubias pictured is so robust that it should be able to withstand their eating attempts. It may happen that veiltails occasionally nibble at single leaves of the fast growing waterweed. However this doesn’t harm the plant and it contributes to the healthy nutrition of the fish. In addition, living aquatic plants are vital for the biological structure of the aquarium.

Modelled on nature

Since goldfish are cultivated varieties of the Crucian carps, the carp habitat can serve as a model. These fish like to live, as goldfish do, in stagnant waters or in waters with a gentle current, partly full of vegetation and partly free for swimming. These animals are very sociable and should never be kept singly.

How to maintain your goldfish aquarium aquarium

Water change

Perform a 1/3 weekly partial water change with a hose. Siphon any waste from the bottom and between the stones with a hose. Prepare the water afterwards with JBL Biotopol .

Water treatment and water tests

Tap water is not always suitable for fish. That’s why it needs to be adapted to the requirements of the fish with an appropriate water conditioner ( JBL Biotopol R ), before adding them. Add a bacteria starter ( JBL Denitrol ) one hour later and you can add fish. Please check the nitrite content with the JBL Nitrite Test NO2 every 2 days during the first 2 weeks.

Plant care

Prune the plants every 2 weeks.

Fertilisation plan

Add weekly liquid fertiliser ( JBL PROFLORA Ferropol , dosing = 20 ml for the aquarium) one hour after the water change.

Maintenance time per week

30 minutes.

How often do you need to empty and to clean the complete aquarium?

Your Goldfish Paradise® can stay healthy and beautiful for many years with the care described above. Redecorating your aquarium a few years later is no problem.

Feeding

2-3 x daily as much as the fish can eat in 2 minutes.
