So I have decide to re-home my 4 single tail goldfish to a pond, since it spring now. I think they will much more happy and have more room to swim around and explore in a pond then a 55 gallon tank. Yes I kow now that they are over stock. I would love to get a large tank but don't have the room for one at this moment. I going to miss them I was think about getting fantail goldfish. how many should I get for a 55 gal
Well, things aren't working out the way I had originally intended. Over the past couple months I had sold off all of my rare tropical fish collections in an effort to streamline my life and cut back on maintenance. I was and still am, anticipating a busy schedule this year with lots of traveling so I was looking forward to less chores. Things were going really well and I was able to get down to two empty tanks (135g & 95g) and the fluval edge (6g). It was then that I entertained the thought of going to cold water fancy goldfish with the idea that it would be less maintenance, required feedings and running costs since I would be able to turn off two 300w heaters. And that's when these cute little fish got the better of me where each one has such charming character and interesting traits that I just couldn't help but collect them to see how they would develop. Combine the different varieties, distinguishing traits and colors, and you can see how things can quickly get out of hand. 3 fish turned into 30+ and now all my tank and pond setups are running full force. I now have the 135g, 95g, five 55g drums, two 250g ponds setup strictly for goldfish... and just when I thought that was going to hold me over...I ordered a 300g stocking tank this past weekend. Geez, what have I gotten myself into? When all is said and done there will be ~1355g (not including the 600g fountain pond) for raising these guys. Anyway, just thought I'd share how this goldfish hobby has turned on me. Can't wait till the new 300g arrives!!!
