no way to know if its the short tailed kind except wait? how long before i should notice it getting bigger? and how long before i need a bigger tank and how big? right now it is in a 10 gallon.

10 gallons is usually an okay size for goldfish on average--- it's a ten gallon per fish ratio.

so i'd say you're in pretty good shape ^^

VERY VERY cute fish btw.

i recently bought a calico ryukin and love her death x3

they're so cute.

yayyy

a small ryukin cant be housed with a larger one can it?(i know this is probably a dumb question but i am new to fish!)

a smaller fiah cam be placed with a larger one as long as the smaller one is larger than 1 1/2 times the size of the big ones mouth. 10 gallons per fancy godfish is OK, but I wouldnt really suggest it. fancys usually gat around 6-8 inches, but there have been cases where the fancys have gotten larger than 10 inches. Just wondering, but when did you set up the tank? is it cycled?
