That's a good idea actually on finding a goldfish or koi pond, I will ask around. I've had a chance of heart actually. The small white/orange goldfish just follows the big orange one around and they are so attached its ridiculous. If i brought them back to my LPS (local business) they most likely wouldn't be sold together. But in a pond they would.
So my question: If I don't find a pond, would a 50 gallon tank work if it already has 3 common goldfish in (the one i linked). I heard that one goldfish should have 20 gallons, and 10 gallons for each additional fish. So that would mean i'm over the bioload by 10 gallons (a lot better then 2 goldfish in a 10 gallon). And of course the pleco in it and two amano shrimps. If this works, should I donate the 3 neon terta's because the bioload is too great, or should i buy 3 more tetras so they are in a school. Sorry for the questions but I don't know what to do!
If 60 gallons worth of goldfish won't work in 50, will using a HOB filter and biggest sponge filter i can find work (double filter)
