Description

## Uncolored Goldfish: A shimmering canvas for your aquarium

The Uncolored Goldfish, also known as the Silver Perch or White Comet Goldfish, offers a unique opportunity for hobbyists. While many goldfish boast vibrant colors, these fish arrive as blank slates, ready to develop their own unique coloration as they mature.

### Scientific Name

Carassius auratus

### Water Quality

Uncolored Goldfish are relatively hardy, but for optimal health, they require clean, well-maintained water. Weekly partial water changes of 25-30% are recommended. A strong filtration system is necessary as goldfish are messy eaters and produce a significant bioload.

* **Temperature:** 68-78°F (20-26°C)
* **Ammonia:** 0 ppm
* **Nitrite:** 0 ppm
* **Nitrate:** Less than 20 ppm

### pH Level

These goldfish can tolerate a wider pH range than some fish, but a neutral range of 6.5-7.5 is ideal.

### GH Level

A moderate GH level of 8-12 dGH is recommended.

### KH Level

A moderate KH level of 4-8 dKH is recommended to help maintain a stable pH.

### Feeding

Feed your Uncolored Goldfish a high-quality goldfish flake food 2-3 times a day, along with occasional treats like brine shrimp or bloodworms. Avoid overfeeding, as this can lead to water quality issues.

### Tank Mates

Uncolored Goldfish are peaceful community fish and can be housed with other peaceful fish of similar size. Here are some good tank mate options:

* White Cloud Mountain Minnows
* Dojo Loaches
* Black Neon Tetras
* Mystery Snails

**Avoid housing them with:**

* Fin nippers like Barbs or Tiger Sharks
* Slow-moving fish like Fancy Guppies or Bettas
* Large, predatory fish

### Substrates and Tank Decorations

* **Substrate:** Choose a smooth gravel substrate that is easy to clean. Avoid sharp rocks that could damage the goldfish’s fins.
* **Decorations:** Uncolored Goldfish appreciate hiding spots like live plants or smooth rock caves. Driftwood can also be added, but ensure it is properly cured to avoid affecting water quality.

### Suitable Plants

Live plants not only enhance the beauty of your tank but also help improve water quality. Choose plants that can tolerate goldfish, such as:

* Hornwort
* Anacharis
* Java Fern
* Water Sprite

**Avoid plants that goldfish will readily eat:**

* Cabomba
* Elodea
* Water Hyacinth

### Sexing and Breeding

Sexing Uncolored Goldfish can be difficult, especially when young. Males tend to develop breeding stars (small white bumps) on their gill covers during breeding season. Breeding goldfish in a community tank is not recommended, as they are prolific breeders and their eggs will likely be eaten by other fish. If you plan to breed them, a separate breeding tank is required.

### Maximum Size and Longevity

Uncolored Goldfish can grow up to 8-10 inches (20-25 cm) in length with proper care. They can live for 10-15 years or even longer.

### Behavior

Uncolored Goldfish are peaceful and social fish. They are active swimmers and enjoy exploring their tank environment.

### Things to Consider Before Buying

* **Tank Size:** Uncolored Goldfish require a spacious tank. A minimum of 55 gallons (208 liters) is recommended for a single fish, with an additional 20 gallons (75 liters) for each additional fish.
* **Lifespan:** These fish can live for over a decade. Be prepared to make a long-term commitment.
* **Water Maintenance:** Goldfish are messy eaters and require regular water changes and tank maintenance.

### General Information

Uncolored Goldfish are a good choice for beginner and experienced aquarists alike. Their peaceful nature and interesting color development make them a rewarding addition to the home aquarium.

### Fun Fact

The goldfish is the oldest domesticated fish, with its origins traced back to China over 1,000 years ago!
