The Bubble Eye is a great aquarium goldfish and they are very unusual. Their eyes are very delicate. The Tosakin was developed as a pond fish in Japan. They will do well in an aquarium but they will need special care.
The Bubble Eye is a strange yet unique looking goldfish. They are great for an aquarium and they are quite tame.
The Bubble Eye has sacs filled with fluid under their eyes and this is why they got their name of bubble Eye. The weight of the eye sacs makes them very slow swimmers and they like to swim close to the bottom of the tank. This fancy goldfish can be kept with other species of fish but they must also be slow swimmers so the Bubble Eye will be able to get their share of the food.
The eye sacs are the bubble eye goldfish’s most distinguishing features but they are also their biggest handicap. The eye sacs can be easily damaged on sharp or ragged edges of rocks should not be added to the aquarium for decorati9on. Aquatic plants are an excellent addition to your aquarium but do not use plastic plants. Ornamental plastic plants can be scratchy.
If the eye sacs get damaged they will heal in time but they could be scared or lop sided and this could affect the fish’s ability to swim.
The Bubble Eye is not the fish for a beginner and they need more attention than some of the other types of goldfish. They like still water and they like a lot of room to swim around in. They really need to have a large tank with a lot of space. Some people recommend 1 fish per 10 gallons of water. They like the water temperature to be warmer than other goldfish and they also like frequent water changes.
The Bubble Eye goldfish must be fed pellets that sink to the bottom of the tank as that is where they spend their time.
The bubble eye goldfish is a delightful species of fish and you will really enjoy having them in your aquarium.
