"Nichelle-   I wouldn't worry about consuming these fish as long as you give them time with the new feed.  What will happen is their system will purge after a few weeks and they will be good to go into the pan.  As long as the…"

"Remember that your system should be able to handle 1-pound of fish per 5-gallons of water.  Although I would go a bit less than that when just beginning with goldfish as they tend to be a bit dirtier than other species.  How large a water…"
