55 Gallon Tank Choosing more friends for my Fancy Goldfish.

Chalupacabra

Have an oranda goldfish and “calico” fancy goldfish in a 55 Gallon. I originally wanted to add another fancy like a butterfly or black moor and a trio of dojo loaches.

I plugged this into AqAdvisor to check and it flipped out.

I know these are some massive waste producing fish, but between aquatic plants submerged in the tank, terrestrial plants in hydroponic trays with their roots in the water, floating plants on the surface, a pair of large sponge filters, a pair of Aquaclear 70s, and weekly water changes, I think I’ve got enough filtration; but I do worry about this being enough space for all 6 fish.

If not, I may just add another pair of fancy goldfish and leave it there. The weather loaches just seemed like a really fun inclusion I’ve never kept before.

Very cool! I have 5 goldfish in my tank; 4 normal and 1 black moor. You will have to upgrade to a 75-80gal though.

More than two goldfish aren't really suitable for a 55 gallon, I agree with TooManyFish1

Ah…will stick to the two then.
