About Me

My name is Jennie and I’m the creator of Solid Gold; a website that’s all about promoting goldfish appreciation and their proper care.  I have kept goldfish on-and-off through my entire life, but it wasn’t until 2008 that I began researching more about keeping them properly.  The rest is history… I was hooked on goldfish almost immediately because of their personable and charming ways!  Currently, my focus is on keeping and breeding quality butterfly tail telescope goldfish.

The goal of Solid Gold is to foster a greater appreciation for goldfish.  To that end I make new videos on my YouTube channel every week and write new blog posts regularly as well.  Please follow along with me on my journey of goldfish keeping!

If you enjoy my videos and blog, please consider dropping some change in my tip jar (located in the upper right-hand side of my blog) to ensure Solid Gold sticks around for a very long time to come!
