Hexagonal tank

Would a 25 gallon hexagonal tank be OK for my two young oranda?  I have read on here and other places that goldfish like longer tanks rather than tall...should I steer clear of the hexagonal tanks?  I do like how they look but want to get what is best for my fishies.

Um, I think you should probably go with a regular rectangular tank. If you LOVE the hex tanks, just try one juvenile oranda, but upgrade, upgrade, u.p.g.r.a.d.e

I wouldn't do that, you see, the reason why you should always keep goldfish in rather long/wide tanks than tall, is because of the surface area.
The larger the surface area, the more oxygen will be exchanged in the water.
Orandas grow very, very big, and the oxygen needed for bigger fish increases very, very fast compared to a juvenile!
If you want to keep anything in that tank, I'd keep some tropicals (with an air stone) or as mentioned, only one fish. But nonetheless, a temporary stay for most goldfish :/

I see, well thanks for the advice, I will go with the typical rectangular aquarium for the one I buy.
