The big tank! (goldfish!)

Well I posted it on my thread on TFK but I figured I should share with you guys as well!
The tank is 90 gallons, and is currently home to 5 baby buffalo head cichlids, and two goldfish. A lionhead (Pascal) and an oranda (Paisley). I'm picking up 3 more fancies soon, and after that not sure what else to squeeze into that last bit of room I have, I'm planning on waiting a couple months before adding more fish. So here's some photos!

Pascal is a pretty outgoing fish, he always rushes up to say hi, and he (and the other lionheads) would follow me all around at the store.:




Paisley is a little more shy, she's so cute. She still likes to hide in the back of the tank when I come up, but she's calming down pretty quickly.:

I would not recommend any more fish for that tank.

Thanks guys. It's 90 gallons, it's pretty understocked right now, even with goldfish. Plus getting a ton more plants so that'll help a lot.

cichlids and goldfish in the same tank? i wouldn't try that myself. do you have plans ready to rehome one or the other if their natures or their individual species needs start to clash with each other?

You can trust Olympia, she really does research! (; Can Goldfish bond with you just the same as Bettas? I find them to be show-offs in the fish world for some reason. :o

Show offs? I think not! The life of a goldfish:
"derp derp nom nom derp nom derp nom nom nom."


They do come to recognize you and seem to get fond of their owners. They are a little more shy though.

our goldies aren't shy at ALL. when we come in the door after being gone away, they all huddle in the front corner to say hi to us, jumbling all over each other to be the ones with the best view.
