Pearlscale Goldfish are an odd-looking fish that live in coldwater aquariums happily with other Fancy Goldfish. They are golfball shaped with prominent scales, this makes them popular in the trade as they are very different to other fish.
Please be aware that the image is for illustration purposes only. We are unable to guarantee the size, colour, sex or age of the fishes you are purchasing. If you have any questions regarding livestock please contact us. To minimise stress we are unable to hand pick specific fish. Lifespan is an estimate based on optimum conditions.
Ease of care
Easy. We recommend having at least 30 litres of water per Goldfish. A lot of waste is produced so an adequate filter and pump are needed. They do eat plants so you can use plastic plants instead, for decoration.
Flake & sinking pellets are best. High Protein fish food when they are breeding. Sinking Pellets are best to help prevent swim bladder issues.
Community with other peaceful Fancy Goldfish and bottom feeders such as a Borneo Loach in cold water tanks. They will eat most live plants. They can have issues with swimming so no fast moving tank mates.
Moderate. They are egg layers and breed best when in groups as they are very social.
They can live up to 10-15 Years in perfect conditions.

They are subsequently transported to a retail shop, and further transported to your home aquaria. A total of 4 points of transit.
