I purchased a 55 gal tank from a friend who didn't want it anymore. After seeing 'Goldie haven' I thought that it would be perfect for these amazing types of fish. I am cycling it at the moment but while doing research I have been getting mixed information on how many of these egg shaped fish I can have in the tank with out over stocking it. Veil tails are the name for the fin of any of the fancy breeds of goldfish. There are veil tailed Moors, Ryukins, Tuskins, Oranda, etc. Mostly these voluptuous breeds are slow moving, affectionate, long lived, and can achieve lengths of eight(ish) inches (including tail-which is usually half their body length). I hope that some expert in goldies can give me information on how many fish I can have in the 55 gal with plants. Plants include needle leaf Java, Anubias, Crypts, Vals, Swords, and normal Java fern. These plants are not tastey to goldies. I will take pictures of the tank when all is set and fish are established and healthy in their new home. The pictures below are what I am hoping to stock the tank with. So ... input??, Answers? Advice? These are the 'Drag Queens' of the domesticated fish world. They are beautiful !! I must have them! These are like 'pin-up/girly posters' for fish lovers to pin on the walls in their bedrooms. ...Ya, I know...I need therapy.
