Hi, I'm new to the forum and don't have goldfish yet (have tropical - pea puffers, betta, mollies, guppies, etc.) but did have them as a kid. I really want to get a tank with two fancy goldfish in them, I am really in love with the oranda and the telescope eye. Anyway, I am looking at different tanks. I want something they would be good in for long time. In my research I have seen various suggestions about tank size...I understand the bigger the better but I am wondering if a 29gallon long like this one... http://www.fluvalaquatics.com/ca/product/15216-premium-aquarium-starter-kit-29-wide/#.VQuyxTh0zIU the dimensions are as long as a 40 breeder but not as wide. The Fluval 29 long is 36X12X16. The kit seems nice but I understand that I would be upgrading or adding more filtration as the fish grow. Your advice is very much appreciated as I am hoping to provide a good home for the long haul. Thanks!
I do not have any goldfish yet but I do have some experience with freshwater fish. I am in the planning research phase I have already asked some opinions about tank size. I am looking at the 29g fluval long 91 x 30.5 x 40.5 cm (36 x 12 x 16 in) /45g bow front 91 x 40.5 x 51 cm (36 x 16 x 20 in). The tank would be situated in a room that we spend most of our time in when we are home. Anyway, I am wondering can one fancy, in particular either an oranda or a telescope live happily on his/her own? I haven't found much about this. I really want to make a good decision about the home I provide for the fish because it is unlikely I will be able to upgrade the tank in the future due to space and the maintenance required. Thanks for your help .
