Can we give this guy some advice


Recommended Posts


I'm not really sure what to tell them but they seem to care about their goldfish. It sounds like they're keeping the fish in a 10 gallon which is obviously too small but how big of a tank would they really need for those fish? Also the fish should have grown in size after a year right, or maybe they just have big hands?

For the goldfish and tankmates, I'd recommend around a 35 - 45 gal. Depending on how large the other fish he got that he doesn't know the breed of, it can vary. For a completely happy goldfish I'd recommend a 20 - 30, but with the barb and the 2 unknown, I would want to safely bump the gallons up to 35 - 45. If he could share a photo of the unknowns it would be easier to tell. Hope this helps!
