I got 4 new Oranda's for my birthday. Up to now still shock and actually stress about it. I love the goldfish but stress since I honestly I am not familiar with how to care for goldfish, yet alone Oranda's. :---( I did some research about how to care for it, but still need some guidance. I dont want to give them away, so I'm trying my best to care for them the best way I know how, base on research of course. I have 4 of them in 10G tank with filter (since they do produce so much waste), no heater (since they need to be between 60-70), airbubble (to create more oxygen), and gravels; some decors plastic plants. So far, they said 1 goldfish should be on 10G, so I have four = 40G :shock::shock::shock:, when should I consider upgrading the tank, or is their a way I can have them in 10G and just do 2 - 3 water change, with water conditioner. They are no longer than 1" just babies. I know for a fact that when they get bigger they need more room, can I postponed this for another 6month to a year. Just really compress in space, and money is tight. Please help. Thanks alot for all the responses.
