Q&A: Got a goldfish from a carnival. What can I do to keep him alive over night until I can get him a tank?

Question by Kate L: Got a goldfish from a carnival. What can I do to keep him alive over night until I can get him a tank?
Just won a little common goldfish from the fair, but it’s late at night and all the pet supply stores are closed. What steps can I do to keep him alive over night?

I have him in a Tupperware, and I added some distilled water to the water he was in. I figure that have less stuff in it then regular water.

Also, I have some triops food, can I feed him a little?

And if anyone knows of a good little affordable first fish pet tank let me know.
Also, looking at a tank like this:

I know it’s been said that they need a lot of room, but it sounds to be it’s because they just are really dirty. Would it be bad to have a fish in a tank like this and just clean the water more frequently?

Also, he’s about an inch. Dunno if that means anything

not sure about the food– but keep an eye on him.

as for the tank, nothing will be very cheap. dont get a bowl. to start out you could gett a 20 gal but if you got a 55 then that would be good. goldfish can grow to be about 1 foot long. so eventually you could build a pond and put a few more in, too. If you cant do that you could find someone who can take him or sadly keep him in a 20 gal iguess its better than a bowl :/

i just sent my goldfish to the pond, and im worried?

Question by The Jam: i just sent my goldfish to the pond, and im worried?
about 3 weeks ago i went there just to take a look at the pond and saw a BUNCH of kois/goldfish swimming at the top

now that i went to the pond to let my goldfish live in there, i didnt see any more koi nor goldfish swimming, i did see triops though, they look like plecos under the water. will they be alright?, the goldfish are 6″ each. and i just putted the 2 of them.

can there be like basses and predatory fish in a BIG pond where there are goldfish and koi and triops living in there????
the pond im talking about is very big it belongs to my friend’s neighborhood, but i DID see goldfishes and kois in there
well my friend also putted his common pleco in there because it was too big for his tank, months later he was waiting at the school bus stop, and he took a look at the pond, and saw a pleco near the shore of the pond, his pleco grew like 10″ from where he left it. and is STILL in there

Answer by Kim
I would say no since Triops are carnivorous. They also need higher temps than goldfish.

Answer by animaallvr
I don’t think they would survive long. Triops are very small and very vulnerable (At least as hatchlings) and would most likely be eaten. But I might be wrong. I suggest you experiment with it a bit.
Good luck! animaallvr

Answer by t j s
the fish will eat the triops, yum yum, they are often sold as fish food!

the guppy and goldfish can live together so long as you find a temperature that is suitable for both. I recommend 24Celcius. the gold fish will eat the guppies babies!
