Dear Meijer Fish Department Customers

Fish Bowl "Tip" number 1: This is a goldfish, probably a fantail.  That is a glass bowl holding approximately one gallon of water.  The two should never ever, ever go together.

A fantail goldfish is, like any goldfish, a form of carp.  Even at this size it needs an absolute minimum of 10 gallons of  actively filtered water.

If you plan to not kill your new pet prematurely, which seems like a reasonable assumption to me, it will grow to 8 inches in length and need a minimum of a 30 gallon tank or preferably a small pond.
