Disadvantages: Very short life expectancy
What more can I say, these fish are probably the easiest pet in the world to keep and over my last 29 years I have kept several. Some I have obtained form fairs and others I have bought from pet shops.
All they really require is a tank and some feed, which may I add lasts a very long time.
Personally I find all fish both interesting and therapeutic to watch and the goldfish is no exception. There is something very calming watching fish dart about their tank!
One of the negative aspects of keeping goldfish is their short life span so while they are an economical pet to keep and good for children, they can also cause great upset to your child should they die. Personally I never managed to keep a goldfish longer than 6 months or so, but maybe I have been unlucky. This would not however put me off getting more goldfish and no doubt in the future I will become an owner of one again!
Summary: Not as dull as you might think!
