10 or 20 gallon Q-tank better for one goldfish?

Recommended Posts

Is it better to quarantine a 3 1/2 inch goldfish in a 10 or 20 gallon tank?  Which would you all do?

Many will say bigger is better but also the 20 gal will require twice as much medication if you have to treat. So I think either would be fine for a QT. If the fish was bigger I'd say go with the 20.

I prefer a 10g for QT, though if its a large fish I will use bigger. It's easy to work out the amount of meds needed, easier to do daily WCs and uses less meds

Thanks for the advice, I'll go with the 10G.  And when i went up in the attic to bring down my 23 year old 20G to see if it was still water tight it turned out it was actually a 30G lol.
