I can get them all still. If I get rid of my tetra school though, I can fit in some goldfish along with all the other fish I want. Contrary to popular belief, fancy goldfish belong at more "tropical" temperatures than regular goldies do.

Considering koi can hit 3 feet long, nope.
The ryukin, ranchu, and fantail are a lot smaller, usually stop at about 8" so they'd be fine for the tank.

awee. I thought my glofish was looking a little off. found a pale danio corpse this morning, and thought it was one of my albinos, but both albinos were swimming and Pinky was nowhere to be seen. Poor little thing, it had a good few months with us.

Black moors and orandas can still hit 10". Shubikin gets to 12" and is a true pond fish. Too big. The telescope eye is too fragile. Probably going to stick with a regular fantail. Or those ranchus- love their chubby looks.

Ah, yes they are very cute, like whales. They come in black too, cool, I was just going by color really, not sizes. hahaha. sorry. Just thinking those colors would fit in the african tank and not be too bright? flashy?

I looked up african goldfish and got the band, lol. Also a youtube of ciclhid eating a goldfish? i didnt watch it.

everyone have a great day.
