    Default Yellow Belly Slider with gold fish

    Probably a really stupid question but I resently obtained a yellow belly slider and have purchased a tank and good filter and all the fun stuff but am wondering if I introduced larger fancy gold fish, how well that would work out or if they would go missing... Leaning more towards go missing but just a thought....

    We buy goldfish as a special treat for our sliders, they love them and get some excercise hunting them. So it would be great for your slider but not so much for the fishies.

    Kinda what I figured.. I just wanted to shut down the 10 gal but I keep looking at the great colors of my fancy goldfish and don't think I have the heart to give them to the big girl. I am also concerned that the size of teh gold fish might be too big for her to eat so I will just stick to feeder fish for her

    A 10 gallon is probably too small for larger goldfish, no?

    I would think it depends on how many you are talking about.
