Hi I'm new to the forums here, I was thinking of buying some goldfish for a freshwater aquarium and buying a big tank, thinking on a 300-400 litre tank

I would like other fish in the tank with them and I've did some of research and the possible tankmates I could find are
1.White Cloud Mountain Minnows
2.Rosy Red Minnows
3.Dojo Loach

Is there any other fish that could be considered "compatable" with goldfish?

Also what types of food can you feed them? I would imagine a varied diet would be a plus, I was thinking of feeding them goldfish pellets and flakes but I've heard you can feed them stuff like oranges.

How should the oranges be prepared for them? Cut into small pieces?
What other food can they eat that would be benificial to them?

Dojo loaches are cool water fish and do OK with goldfish.


Where are you as that affects what other fish you can keep?

Hi Fishsaur,
I think that Dojo loaches and the Cat fishes are quite compatible with Goldfish in the water tank. You can give dry food to your fishes like pellets, sticks, tablets, granules, and wafers.

My experience with Dojos and Goldfish has been not so good. While it is not a good idea to mix various species together I tried it in a large tank of Goldfish. And while Dojos are inexpensive and grow fast and did not seem to bother the Goldfish the Dojos constantly harassed and teased the Goldfish. After some consideration I separated the fish and the Goldfish seemed to do OK.
