At Shauna’s Petshop we believe that fish deserve the right environment to live a happy and healthy life. Goldfish bowls do not provide this and therefore we do not sell them. Goldfish can live up to twenty years or more and grow to even 4 times their size when living in the right conditions. Goldfish and other species need to live in a tank with a filter and ornaments to hide in or investigate as they are intelligent! They also need plants to help keep the oxygen levels in the water high. Fish extract oxygen from the water around them, and if there is no filter to filter out waste, then there is no oxygen. Fish don’t want to live in their own toilet. Be kind, be safe, and buy a proper tank and filter for your new pet.
