Can I put two 4' silverdollar and 8 goldfish together contained by a 55 gallon aquarium.?
I have a 55 gallon aquarium which have one arge pleco and two 4' silver dollar fish and was wondering whether it is okay to add 8 goldfish to my tank. The goldfish are about two inches long. I am different at fresh water tropical fish. Thanks
no, aside from the info above the pleco alone should be in a bigger tank and goldfish average a over a foot contained by length
Each silver dollar will need 55 gallons all to itself at some point.
Plecos also grow huge.
Goldfish need cold wet.
Silver dollars need warm water.
You can't hold on to all those fish together.
Not now when they're small, and certainly not when they start approaching mature sizes.
Dude, Yes you can put silver $ in there with the goldfish, but they are more easily upset than the goldfish will require heater and filtration system, cleans and provides oxygen source for the $'s that the durable goldfish can live without. Not a combination I'd put together, but it's your tank. Goldfish will appreciate the electric fire temp. water.
Get a few more silver dollars.
The Pleco may outgrow the tank eventually, depending on the species, but that may embezzle several years.
But the answer is yes goldfish and silvers are fine together as long as the marine is around 75-78 Goldfish are cooler water species but fancy's do well in hose up to around 79.
