Well generally you can expect a max of 10" from them. Fantails tend to stay around 8"..

typical in proper care.*

I didn't know you could keep goldfish with cichlids. That would make for an interesting tank.

10 Gallon Tank:
~Countless Pond Snails~1 Espe's Rasbora~1 Harlequin Rasbora~

5 and 5.5 Gallon Tanks:
~empty~

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Just out of curiosity, what would be good stocking for goldfish in a 55 gallon? I would love to have a group of goldfish and not just one since they are social, so I am not sure which would be comfortable in that size tank.
