Just thinking out loud. Feel free to add input
So...I really want a goldfish, specifically a long-bodied goldfish...a comet. I have wanted one for a very long time now. I only want one. Some people have said that goldfish need to be with other goldfish, but the mods on my goldfish forum say that there is no need to have more than one if you don't want to, and I know that they know a great deal about goldfish. Also, I will provide the goldfish with various forms of stimulation as well as my attention so he won't get bored.
So yeah I want to get one comet goldfish. I have tweaked my plans for him several times, but I think I know what setup I want for him...
I want to get a standard 75 gallon tank. Play sand as the substrate. I believe he should have something to sift through...some very large fake plant, maybe two...two aqueon 55/75 quietflow filters. They each are 400gph. I really want the Aquaclear 110's, but they are so ridiculously expensive that I will upgrade to those at a later time, if need be....not sure what I am going to feed him at first to make him grow, but besides his staple pellets I want to give him spinach or repashy soilent green, or both.
So yeah...sorry this is so long...just what I have been thinking...Let me know what you think if you want...
