Hi! I'm The Fish Lady! 馃槂 nice to meet you!馃槂
They will last for years if you take real good care of them, honey!
Actually, they were me very first fish when I begun the hobby years ago!馃槂 I call them my babies!馃槀馃槀
What size tank you have him in? And, what have you named him?
They like it on the cooler side; okay? They can get pretty big if you take real good care of them!馃槂

I had to get him for a school project (aquaponic tank) so it's in a 2-liter bottle but I'm working on getting him a little bit of a bigger fish tank. I named him Lil Ray

When you are able get a cheap 10 gallon, throw some pea pebbles into the bottom, get this from hardware store, cheap, rinse real well, get a simple above filter system that you hang on the side or back, pickup a couple of plants and decoration if you want, get a small Air stone and air pump, cheap, and some All in 1 water conditioner and there you have it, honey! Your baby's cage!

Hi!馃槂
Omg!! Was it a water type plant? How was Lil Ray supposed to get his needed air from?
Is your project over now?
Thanks for the pictures. I understand now.
Yeah, the project is over. The plant is a mary gold what is exposed happens is the goldfish has waste then the plant roots take the fertilized water and grow. when the plant was on it there were small spots air could get in. When i get a bigger tank I am saving the others that are leftover because my teacher was going to kill the remaining ones.
