im well aware of overstocking, the owner is a old school fish person. he wouldn't heed that advice nor would like me pointing it out. the tank is around 1.5 ft tall and deep and 4-5 ft long.

the type that doesnt use water conditioner ie the generation that lets the water sit for a day. he also doesnt really use heaters. he thinks bettas are fine in small tanks and no heaters. i dont know what small tanks are to him but it probably doesnt meet expectations here. ive told him how large my tanks are ie 2.4-5g. he thinks that too large, i think he's a betta bowl person than a +1gal tank person. he's a retiree and a stubborn person at that. his tank is filtered but thats it aside from tank light. he's a good person at heart but he's difficult to deal with at times.

Look I'm not trying to argue but 5 goldfish are perfectly fine in 40 gallons. Have you ever had goldfish before?? And that still counts as harassment since it shouldnt have been said in the first place. That can hurt the OP's feelings. Same with you Okami.

Goldfish grow 8-12 inches. For a fancy start at thirty after each extra add 10-20 gallons per fish. For fancy have 70 gallons for common a 100 or 200 gallons. We and Swimmmommy made up and apoligized already.
