    0 right now. new to the hobby and doing research.
  1. Thanks Arctic Mama for the info. And thanks to everyone else for the warm thoughts. My neighborhood wasn't hit too hard by Irma and we now have power back on, so I can't complain. There are still a lot of people without power and everything along the St. Johns river flooded badly. But we'll bounce back. As far as the tank goes, I'm leaning towards getting this tank and I'd like to get a Shubunkin, a Sarasa and a Black Moor. I understand that comets are much better swimmers than Black Moors so I'd have to monitor it and make sure the Moor is getting enough food. Or I maybe I'll skip the Moor and get another comet. We'll see. I'm hoping 3 fish will be a good stock level for that tank. Still gotta set up and cycle the tank first, so I have some time to decide
  2. Well, hurricane Irma rudely interrupted my plans, so I haven't made any final decisions yet. Hopefully things will be back to normal here soon in Northeast FL and I'll be able to focus on this again. Looking forward to it!
  3. Thanks for all the info everyone. You've been very helpfull.
  4. Thank you for your input, I appreciate it. So you don't think the 48" length is sufficient for the comets to be happy and healthy? I know they are active swimmers, but thought that would be long enough for then get their exercise.
  5. I'm looking to get my first gold fish aquarium and I've found a 66 gallon tank that I think should be enough volume for 2-3 comets, but I want to make sure the dimensions are adequate. It's 48.5"Lx12.75"Wx25"Tall. I'm wondering if the 12.75" width allows enough room for the fish to turn around easily once fully grown. I don't have a lot of room to get a tank much wider than that. Also, would Fancy's be better for a tank this size since they are shorter, or would they be worse since they are less flexible and worse swimmers? Just want to make sure I get the right tank for the right fish? Any input is appreciate. Thanks!! * I apologize if this has been covered. I searched the forums but couldn't find an exact answer.
