I want to add another goldfish to my tank, but I only have the Aqueon 55/75 on my tank (400 GPH) Is it OK to add another goldfish to the 2 I already have?

It's a 40 gallon tank

I have 3 in a 40 gallon. But keep this in mind:

I am an adult (not sure if you are or aren't but I'm just sayin) and am fully willing and able to upgrade should/when I need to. My fish are small. My biggest is 41 grams and he is a year old. My next biggest is only 14 grams and she is probably 3-4 years old (not so good at keeping track of this) and hasn't grown in months, if not years. My 3rd fish I just got 3 weeks ago. He is 4 grams. Should he grow to the size of my biggest fish or larger, I see a bigger tank in my future.

Can you do it? Yes, if you are aware that they may (and very likely will) grow tremendously and need a bigger tank in the not so distant future. :D

Keep on top of your water changes and be aware of nitrates. And start planning for an upgrade so you're ready for it when they grow to be giants. :teehee

I have three in a 40 gallon, and I can't imagine that I'd do it again. I am also an adult, so I know that if I have to do something, I have to do it. It's harder when you're younger, and have to default to your parents' will. School, and social obligations should come first, so why make more work for yourself, when it's unnecessary?

You will never be able to miss a water change, and it's very likely that you will need to upgrade within two years.

Don't do it. Keep your two fish, and watch them grow big. They'll be healthier, and happier, in the long run.

Quality over quantity.
