Ya wanna see a pond full of goldfish? Well, you're in luck. I just happen to have one!! Sorry you can't really see the fish very well. The pond fountain is on to filter the water and it majorly ripples the water. I will go and get better pictures tomorrow. Maybe I'll see Kermit the bullfrog out there. lol Anyways, the fish range from 6 to 8 inches long and have even multiplied a couple of times. Oddly enough, there is oddly only 2 fry from each spawning season that make it to a size where they can't be greedily gobbled up by the big adults.

My hubby came home with a friend for our oranda Fluffy :X

Soon to be upgrading to a larger tank. (He's super tiny, what a cutie)



Since summer is nearly here in Texas (it can't make it's mind up if it wants to be hot or cold!) I may begin looking into fixing out 55 for the two of these..

Hi.
Do you guys think i could put 4 goldfish in a 55 gallon, probably a black moor, a ranchu and some other 2 that i haven't decided yet.
The 55 gallon has an aquaclear 70 right now, i know i might need more filtration, i could probably ad a penguin 350.

I don't know what are you talking about! Me and the voices inside my head will prove you
wrong!

Moors and ranchus get larger than fantails. I would maybe max 3 or 4?

Aww! How cute, Kithy! Just make sure the little one gets his fare share of food. Big goldies can be kinda pushy with food.

You will certainly need more filtration. If you're going for a large goldfish like a fantail or an oranda, you'd probably only want 3. If those other two are ryukins then you should be fine. Four goldfish is max I would keep in a 55. I will be upgrading my 55 to a 75 in about a year as my goldfish become fully grown.

Hehe, yeah he doesn't even come to the surface yet for food so I have to stick my hand in the tank near him and drop the pellets to him while Fluffy is eating on the other side.
