What is proper goldfish maintenance?

I need to make sure I am doing the right maintenance on my goldfish tank.

Your maintenance depends on how many fish you have. Say you have a few goldfish then change carbon and filter pads every month or so, try not to overfeed. Make sure you keep the water cool, tropical 80's is a bit too warm. change 25% of water each month.

Ensure that you have correct fish population based on the size of the tank. Fish should only be fed an amount they can eat. Because uneaten food can also led to algal growth. Perform partial water changes every two weeks. check whether all the equipments are working properly. Ensure the gold fish have plenty of oxygen.

For a goldfish bowl you should change the water every week to ten days. Make sure the new water has been allowed to stand for at least a day.

Gold fish require much space in fish tank as they keep wondering in tank. These fish are not much aggressive creatures and some other species of fish are troublesome for these fish. So before buying goldfish you need to check with which types of fish goldfish live peacefully. Gold fish require food in more quantity than other fish.
