 After  having  a  shop,  I  see  that  I  am  earning  a  substantial  amount  by  selling  gold  fish.   Sad  
 
 Everybody  wants  it.  Why?   Shocked

 Well,  most  people  I  know  order  the  tank  first  (depending  on  the  available  space)  and  then,  later,  want  to  think  about  which  fish  to  keep.
 
 EVERY  SINGLE  person  in  my  extended  family  incl  cousins  (6  separate  houses)  who  had  ordered  a  tank  were  sold  the  Goldfish  by  the  LFS  guys  with  the  respective  tanks..   (all  separate  LFS)
 
 Other  reasons  (besides  the  LFS  guys  pushing  them)  people  buy  goldfish  for  are:
 1.   Feng  Shui/Vastu  Shastra/Voodoo..etc...  
 2.   Kids  LOVE  colorful,  cute,  cuddly  fish..  Goldfish  fit  the  description.
 3.   Goldfish  are  the  most  recognizable  aquarium  fish  in  most  parts  of  the  world..
 
 
 Cheers,
 Sid

 My  question  is  why  do  they  have  to  end  up  in  a  small  bowl  with  no  air  pumps  on?

 I  think  veiltails  look  amazing  and  that  is  the  picture  most  people  have  in  their  mind  when  they  go  for  goldfish.

 I  guess  for  starters  this  is  the  most  common  fish  to  go  for  because  of  its  color,  fins  and  gentle  behaviour.
 But  as  you  grow  older  in  the  hobby,  you  realize  the  potential  of  this  fish  for  making  the  water  dirty  and  slowly  get  away  from  keeping  it.

 Guess  we  have  to  blame  cartoons  like  Tom  and  Jerry  for  that.  Whenever  you  see  goldfish  in  cartoons  or  even  any  kids  show,  they  are  kept  in  a  gold  fish  bowl.  
 Who  would  not  love  the  akward  swimming  motion  and  those  lovely  flowing  fins  of  a  goldfish.

 They  are  not  really  best  for  beginners..  Think  how  easy  it  is  to  keep  your  Hockey-stick  tetras.  Keeping  mollies  and  platys  is  even  easier..

 Hmm..  I  was  going  to  say  it  still  doesn't  make  sense  because  the  "kindergarten"  of  the  hobby  should  be  sturdier  and  cleaner  fish  which  are  easier  to  take  care  of...  But  then  I  thought,  when  has  school  or  college  curriculum  ever  matched  the  real-world  requirements!
 
 So,  in  a  way  what  you  said  makes  sense..Smile

 yeah  tetras  are  easy  but  normally  people  begin(from  my  experiance)  goldfish  or  gouramis...  i  did  the  same  and  i  guess  even  u  did  the  same

 all  the  experts  at  first  keep  goldies  to  season  their  tank  as  goldfish  are  hardy  fishes.  After  six  or  seven  months  they  think  of  keeping  other  kinds  of  fishes.   but  majority  of  people  are  amazed  by  the  color,  their  peaceful  attitude,  etc.  I've  also  kept  golds  at  first,  secondly  tetras,  thirdly  cat  fishes,  and  fourthly  i  now  have  4  seperate  tanks  with  4different  kinds  of  fishes  like  oscars,  piranha,  flower  horns  and  sharks.

 Yes..  But  that  was  because  I  was  misguided  by  the  LFS  guy  (not  because  Goldfish  are  good  beginner  fish)..This  is  one  of  the  reasons  I  mentioned  above  as  why  people  get  Goldfish.
