Hey guys:) I would like your advice as to whether or not i should get some more goldfish. My previous ones died, one from gill disease, and one from fin rot (although my water parameters were perfect...?), and my parents are allowing me to get 2 more for my tank (which is cycled and filtered), however they told me that if these ones die within a year (i know goldfish should live to 20 yrs old), I am done with fish and can't get any more. </3. when my fishies got sick, i tried to give them medicine, but it didn't help them in time, and unfortunately they both died, one a week before the other. i only had them for 3 months! loved those little guys:(. so, do you think i should get more goldfish, or do you think i should get some boring tropical fish instead? ( i hear they're hardier...)i really want some goldfish rather than tropicals, but i don't want to be forbidden to get fishies ever again! i probably will end up getting goldfish. i just love them so much! (i am, in fact, on a goldfish forum... ...). so, can anybody tell me how to prevent sickness and disease in goldfish? will freshwater aquarium salt (kind of an oxymoron...haha)be good for preventing illness? do even the most knowledgable aquariusts have fish die young sometimes? or do their fish ever get sick and not be able to treat them in time? please help me! i just love having my fishies in my room, and really don't want them to get sick:( Thank you!
