Super friendly Wakin Goldfish


Addicted to Aquariums
Does anybody else have extremely friendly goldfish? Like I put my hand in the tank and they immediately swim over to me and rub against my hand like they wanted to be petted haha. They don't rub against anything in the tank, so it's not ich or anything. I've never had such friendly fish though lol. They even watch me in my office and swim up to the front of the glass to be entertained lol.

That's the entire reason I love goldfish - they're just full of personality. :)
For sure.

They're highly underrated and have a lot going for them IMO.

They're awesome! I never understood why people dismiss them as not "serious" fish. Plus, they'll teach you how to run a big tank, for sure. (See above thread with my water troubles. Ugh.)
