New Tank

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I hope you all remember me...i just lost my big tank of 7 feet and got rid of all the things + fish.

Now i miss all my fish and was wondering if i can keep a smaller tank and only one Big size Goldie like 7 or 8" goldie.

Please guide me what Size tank is best to keep just a single fish of 7-8".

i would like a low mintance type of tank.

Thanking you for your Help in advance.

I agree with jdude. A bigger tank will be less maintainance, as long as you don't get any more fish. If you got a bigger tank, like 30 gallons, and just kept one 8" fish in it, you could probably do water changes every two weeks (instead of every week, like most people do). That's the tradeoff -- a smaller tank means more work, but takes up less of your space, while a bigger tank is less work.

I think a 20 gallon tank should be enough, i have one, and its kinda big

I knew you couldn't stay away from tanks and a goldfish for long, Fefe!! A 20 or 30 gl tank is so much more pleasant when it comes to maintenance, compared to your old big tank!! )

Wow, a 7 foot tank.... I can't imagine how much water that held! :o:)

Not less then 15 for low maintenance. A ten gallon is shaky for a big goldfish, in my opinion. A good filter will also do wonders.

Hope you enjoy.

I don't think the shapes

matter, but for a fish that big,

I would suggerst a long 20 gallon.

Hope that helped!

If you deside on a fancy goldie the shape of the tank won't really matter, as they don't mind the deeper water. (keep in mind though that taller tanks have less surface area and will require the use of some kind of airation.) If you deside on a streamline (Common, comet, etc) a longer tank is better. These guys like to swim along the glass.

Good luck!

PS: Also try to not forget about water changes when picking a shape. For instance, a 20 gallon hexagon will be more of pain to clean due to depth. :)
