    I have a 30L x 18W x 24H 55 gallon aquarium With 2 Marineland Penguin 200 filters.

    The tank currently has a few tropical fish in it.

    How many Fancy Goldfish could I keep in it once the tropical fish are gone?

    I also want a few plants, but Im not sure what kinds to keep with goldfish.

    What sort of Fancy Goldfish are best with each other?

    Hi, welcome to fishlore :;hi2

    In a 55g, I'd say 3 fancies would be the maximum I would do.

    All fancies get along so it comes down more to who will get the food. Fantails have really good eye sight and are super fast so I would be tempted to keep them with their own kind.

    Orandas and moor's or telescopes are slower and would be alright together also.

    Remove all decorations other than plants. Goldies are notoriously clumsy and easily have eye injuries.

    Plants are hit and miss and they tend to want to eat them. Mine never bothered my anubias or my java ferns. Some won't eat them at all, you'll just have to see what your individual fish are like.
