Hiya,

Just after feeding, my goldfish always go down to the bottom, suck up the gravel and spit it back out again!!! I realise this is becuase food had sunk to the bottom, just thought I'd share it with you!!!

Goldfish always do this. Be aware that the poop that is in the gravel is toxic and they are rooting around in it and may get sick. You need to vac that gravel frequently.

Also, they may get a piece of gravel stick in the mouth and be unable to spit it out, so have some tweezers ready and be prepared to help them if it ever happens.

These are two reasons why goldfish enthusiasts prefer bare bottom tanks.
