The Deepsea Explorer tank is suitable for one or two small goldfish. Goldfish can grow up to 12 inches in length, and as they grow they should be transferred to a bigger tank, or even a garden pond.
Aquarium water needs to mature before fish are introduced, this helps to prevent the fish dying from ‘new tank syndrome’. Chlorine in tap water is harmful to fish, so use a water conditioner such as API Aqua Essential at start up and during water changes. Beneficial bacteria also need time to grow in the aquarium filter before fish are added, as they help to break down fish waste and remove harmful chemicals such as ammonia. Water treatments such as King British Filter Aid+ speed up this process. Always read the instructions carefully before using water treatments.
Never over feed your fish as uneaten food rots and contaminates the water. Always read and follow the feeding instructions.
