EVoyager31 Posted November 28, 2022 Share Posted November 28, 2022 Okay so I am thinking of dipping my toes into my first saltwater tank— and I need to consolidate my two goldfish tanks so I can use the 55 for my saltwater venture...I don’t have the space for another large tank in my fish room/office 😅😅 Problem is, I am very partial to my goldfish and right now I have 4 medium-large boys in the 75, and 4 small-mediums in the 55. I am comfortable getting rid of my Ryukin (he just doesn’t have much personality and doesn’t fit in with the fantails, orandas, and ranchus. I have a spare 20 tall I could maybe put the smallest guy into (a ranchu who I believe is already stunted— about 2.5” in length who I refuse to part with). Now realistically, how many goldfish could I get into my 75? It has two canister filters on it (sunsun 304B and sunsun 704B) and I generally do a minimum of 50% changes every week. Sand bottom with a few crypts as decor so lots of open space. I was of the opinion that 4 was a max limit.. but now I’m not sure if that is because of swim space or because of bioload. I want to make sure they have happy fish lives.. and will send a couple away to new homes if thats what it takes but I’d like to keep as many as possible. The 75g is well established and I have not had any issues with spikes of any variety. I’ll list out the specs of each fish below: 75 Gallon currently: 6” fantail - Buddy 6” oranda - Crusty Rusty 5” oranda - Punk 4” fantail - Rooney 55 Gallon Currently: 4” Ranchu - Artie 3.5” Ranchu - Benny 3” Ryukin - Wally 2.5” Lionhead Ranchu - Pip Thoughts? I imagine the answer is “no more goldies in the 75” but I’d like everyone’s opinions! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
