Well I seem to have been severely misinformed on how to stock my tank. I stand corrected on the one gallon per inch rule. Thank you for clarifying that for me.

yeah, if you think about it (like someone said of a 10 inch oscar in a 10 gallon), it's more of waste than size :) A goldie physically can fit in a smaller tank, but they poop lots


as for if females can be with guppies...some can some cannot. I had my 4 females with FEMALE guppies...the plain jane ones.... no problem. But there are some females who are just meanies

keeping a goldfish in anything smaller than what's recommended is a death sentence for them. :I i had my fancy goldfish in a 10 gallon tank with a friend, because i was told that was okay. kept up with water changes. they still died. my common goldfish would have lived longer than 11 years if i'd had him in a pond, rather than a 29 gallon tank. the recommended size is just that, because it gives the fish room to grow and dilutes the ammonia AND gives them room to grow. a foot-long goldfish isn't going to be happy in a 10 gallon tank. there's no room to swim for them.

I use to have 4 females together but that one was trouble 3 would bunch up on one :(
So I separated them..wother the years I lost one female..now I have the one that would get picked on in a separate tank with some glo light tetras..and the two of the 3 left that would bunch up on her..haven't seen any bitting of missing tails..but I have kept a close eye on them..like you said..they can start trouble..I have read alot here..just hoping they continue to play nice :)

I had Marge and Tina together and they were fine. But they've always been oddly close o_O But I did add two more, also siblings, and it worked helped they were all more submissive than the new ones I got xD

I've seen one female live in a community tank just fine :)
