That's a bit too large IMO.. For a heavily finned male that would be a bit too big/deep

could be a good way to start up a breed barracks....use that monster tank for the females, and get a 5-foot wide shallow tank and divide it for the males :D

Goldfish are actually neither. They originally come from temperate waters. This means that throughout the year they experience temperatures as high as 80F and as low as 40F. Fishbase.org lists the maximum temperature for goldfish as 105F. This is not a healthy level to keep them at permanently, but they can survive up to that level. The myth that goldfish are "coldwater" fish came from the fact that it is slightly easier to keep them at temperatures in the low 70's. They need less oxygen and less food (which of course means less poop). In fact the fancy goldfish shouldn't be kept at temperatures below 70F as their deformed digestive tract has trouble functioning much below that. It's really only the single-tail goldfish that can survive at true coldwater temps.

That being said, kfryman has a good point. Goldfish can be voracious destroyers of plants. Best not to keep them in a NPT. It would become a natural planted salad bar.

No goldfish it is. :) Are black ghost knife fish okay with a heavily planted tank? I have contacted a local fish dealer. Hopefully she'll be able to get back to me on some tetras.

Ghost knives love planted tanks.
What kind of tetra are you looking into, don't want them to become snacks. Congo tetra are large enough. I also love angel fish, which would be great.

I am also considering making one tank a sorority tank in the not too distant future. :) All the tanks I have are over a foot tall though. The shortest is about a foot and a quarter. Would that be too much for female bettas?

I was looking into rummynose or just plain neon tetras. lol. I have 2 freakishly big tanks (100+ gallon) and 3 smaller tanks (50-60 gallon). I was thinking maybe making one into a schooling fish tank. I would keep the black ghost in one of the bigger tanks. I still have to research good tankmates though.
