Hi guys! Its been a while since I last posted on here. I have tried to do college without keeping goldfish due to their space requirements, but I am having some difficulty keeping them out of my life ...So I bought a 40 gal stock pond/tank online this weekend, and I am planning to set it up as an indoor water garden/goldfish pond in my room. I have never kept long-bodied fish before, as I have always considered them pond fish, and I only kept a 20g one fancy-fish aquarium through high school. So heres my question: Could I keep 1-2 comets in a 40g setup? The filter I have is 400gph, and I plan to do 50% water changes weekly, and 100% monthly. I have read on some websites that 55+ gal is recommended for comets, and on others that 30g is good for one fish, and 40g is good for two. If the general consensus is that this set up would be too small for a comet (or two), I will stick to ryukins, but would love to keep comets if I can. Thanks!
Hey guys! Today I caved and got the 40 gallon breeder I have been thinking about for the past month or so. I wasn't planning on getting it so soon, but I got a really great deal on it. My little Otis was looking so claustrophobic in the 20g tank he was in. I am so excited about it and he is loving the extra space since he's got it all to himself (for now ) I'm running an AQ70 and an AQ50 filter on it, until I can get a canister or another AQ70. It looks pretty plain at the moment but I'll be adding more plants to it eventually. I'm planning to add some type of storage underneath it since the stand has room for it. It'll all come together nicely With the extra space I also have room to get another fish, but I don't really want to think about going through anymore QT right now. I wish the video was longer and the photo isn't so crappy, but my camera died immediately!
