Newbie with a question about tank size
« on: December 17, 2011, 07:51:49 AM »

What size tank would I need for two Comet Goldfish? Also How many Ryukin can go in a 55g tank? Thanks

Common Goldfish:
40 gallons (48 US gallons, 180 litres) for the first fish with an extra 12 gallons (14 US gallons, 55 litres) for each extra fish. The tank needs to have a minimum length of 4 feet (120cm) to allow swimming room. Single tail goldfish are more suited to a pond when they are near full size to give them swimming room.

Fancy Goldfish:
30 gallons (36 US gallons, 140 litres) for the first fish with an extra 10 gallons (12 US gallons, 45 litres) for each extra fish. The tank needs to have a minimum length of 3 feet to allow swimming room.

In addition, an external filter is highly recommended.

so 2 comets would need to be in 60g (us) tank

a 55g would house 2 or 3 ryukin

And don't be fooled by the baby ryukins' sizes Wink They WILL grow, and they'l grow fast, so space is essential Smiley
