About the Goldfish

A goldfish is a type of fish that people like to keep as pets. They are often kept in a fish tank or a pond and are easy to take care of.

Goldfish come in different colors, but the most common color is, you guessed it, gold! They also have long, flowing fins and a fun, wiggly tail. Goldfish are fun to watch as they swim around and are a great first pet for kids.

They eat special fish food and need clean water to live in. Taking care of a goldfish is a great way to learn about responsibility and how to care for another living creature.
