Goldfish Needing Privacy?

Recommended Posts

My fantail Charlee is crazy. Everytime she has to poop she either sits quietly in the corner of the tank or hides. Should I build her a little fish outhouse? LOL. Does anyone else's fish do this?

LOL I can't say I've ever seen that, but its so funny that you should make this post because i was just thinking last night "wouldn't it be great if I could train my goldfish to poop in one corner of the tank so its automatically sucked up by a filter?"

 

My guys though, are quite happy to swim around and beg for food with a poop trail :P

I second that, I have seen my Goldie's swim with poop that must be about 3-4x their own body length and they don't care

In general, I think it is thoughtful to have an area of the tank that is private. :rest: 

 

Spawning moms, sick fish - and apparently IIyrian's fish with discreet potty habits - need a place to be alone when they require time out from the school.

I'd just make sure there were some taller plants and call it good :)

Mine will stay in a corner If they're a bit constipated.
