How big a tank...? (goldfish)
I'm not looking to buy anything right this minute since I just spent probably around one hundred or so dollars altogether on my new sorority, but just for future reference I was wondering how big a tank is the minimum for a comet goldfish? If I've got my facts straight they grow about a foot, and I've read differing opinions all over the internet from 10 (haha, NO) to 30 gallons for one fish. But they were mostly talking about fancy goldfish and fantails and such. I really want a comet over the other kinds just because that's what my first fish Ralph was, but I want this one to thrive!
(Ralph was won at a carnival and lasted two days in all, but from then on I knew my pets of choice were fish! During my research on hardy, smaller fish species was when I came across the betta splendens, and as they say, the rest is history!)

Rest in peace, Ralph, Xiang, and Violet...I'm sorry you didn't live to see better care!
