    Goldies are awesome fish if kept in schools! Can be a bit difficult to feed but when they do there colouration is an awesome addition to any tank. Yes they are reef safe as well.

    Yes, they are some of the most beautiful schooling fish you can keep!
    Feeding is always a bit of a problem with them as they only feed planctonic creatures in the ocean & therefore needs regular feedings in captivity!

    I must be lucky then as my goldie is eating mysis and brine shrimp like a pig. I bought her at Wild On Pets. She is gorgeous.
