My butterfly telescope goldfish fry are about 2.5 weeks old. I have about 40 ish, not sure, it is difficult to count them. They are in a 10 gallon tank and I am doing frequent water changes, but I wanted to know how many of them I can raise successfully in this size tank.

Greetings Miss Fishlady, 

My recommendation  from experience is that you would be best with not more than SIX  for first few months and then move up to better quarters.

Thanks Mikroll.

Yeah I knew a 10 gallon wasn't going to be good enough for too long....

I currently have a 45 gallon with 4 butterfly telescope (the parents and two other females), a 45 gallon with tropical community fish, and a 20 gallon with waaaaay too many danio fry, but I guess I will need another tank!
