HOW MANY GALLONS PER FISH DO COMMON GOLDFISH NEED?
I always thought 55 gallons. Do they need bigger? Ponds are out of the question, I'm conversation about aquariums.
i used to go by about 1 fish per gallon of river in a tank, add one gallon whether you put in gravel and decorations, and they were pretty happy and comfortable
i always hold and will continue to say that they are solely pond fish and need to be treated as such..
a fancy godfish however could be kept within a 20 gallon by it'self
3= 55 (simply because a 40 gallon will cost you as much as a 55 anyway)
I would craft yours the best answer!
1 PER EVERY 2 GALLON
but 5o gallons each is best
swear to god, person who gave me a thumbs down.

Maybe lifespan wise, but length he isnt anywhere close. Those goldfish would not even fit in a 10 gallon, and they arent full size but. Seriously. Your fish is going to die. Goldfish live for 15-20 years. See how long your goldfish lives.
55 gallons would be a good starts for comets and commons. You could probably put 2 in there for a touch while. Youd eventually need something like at least 150 gallons for 1. This fish will capture at least 16 inches. And likes to swim. And is very messy. So youd entail quite a large tank to house them for duration.
I agree with the guy above me that goldfish are strictly pond fish. They get the room they need within.
they need ten fish a day **
