Goldfish- Red Cap Oranda, one of the most popular breeds of pet fish, are a lovely, predominately white colour, with a Red Cap on its head and can survive a range of temperatures and water parameters. They have a double tale on their back and in general are fairly hardy and peaceful. 

Although often being thought of as beginner fish, this isn't exactly the case. They get very big, requiring a large tank to accommodate them, and are a bit messy, making a decent filter a requirement. But if you understand the basics, they are a lovely, relatively low-maintenance pet. 

Keeping Goldfish FAQ

Water changes?
About 20% weekly. Don't clean the tank otherwise, other than optionally scraping the walls or vacuuming the substrate every so often.

Tank size?
At least 4-6x the length of the fish is ideal, but the bigger the better. Eventually, these should end up in a pond but not everyone has that option.

Feeding?
Once per day is enough, any standard fish food. Note, that they will eat algae and some plants as well. Duckweed is a great snack to keep them healthy as well. 

Tank mates?
Don't keep them with shrimp! Anything they can fit in their mouth they will have a go at, but otherwise won't usually be too aggressive to other fish.
