Talking My Fancy Goldfish!

So I got some fancy goldfish for my 55 gallon tank finally. I ended up getting five, yes I know one too many but I could not turn down these little guys (and when I say little I mean little). I have no problem upping filtration and water changes. If anything goes down hill care wise I will rehome the fifth one. No worries. :)
I ended up getting 1 deep orange fantail, 1 black moor, 2 ryukin (one white one orange), and 1 orange/brown bubble eye (I can never resist the bubble eyes, they are my all time favorite). I will be keeping a close eye on the bubble eye to make sure the others are not hogging the food or anything, he is doing great so far. :)
Here they are, I named them after tree types.

Aspen:

Hickory:

Spruce:

Chestnut:

forgot to warn you.bubble eyes and sharp plastic plants = pop. you may want to switch to silk.

+1. You may also run into problems with the small sharp substrate - not only can it pose a danger to bubble-eyes, but as they grow, they might swallow it. I find that sand, bare bottom, or large round tumbled river stones are a better option. :)

The fish are lovely! :)

I was planning on changing the décor when they get a little bigger, just have not decided on what my next choice will be. :)

Super duper. Can't wait to see it! I bet they are some happy goldies. It's so nice to see people giving them the space and care that they need!

A little update.
They have gotten about twice as big as when I first got them, I also freed up some space in their tank and removed the slate and moved the plants around. For Christmas I am also planning on replacing the gravel with black sand. :)
