55 Gallon Tank How long will goldfish survive without water change

mrvgw

I have a 55 gal with 2 ranchu goldfish.
I am going on a vacation soon so i wondered how long they would survive without a water change.

My filtration is :
250 g/h canistor filter
2 sponge filters

I will be going for around 2.5-3 weeks.
What extra things would i need for them to survive. (Other than an auto feeder)

Your tank is "understocked"; they'll be fine. What I (and many other hobbiests) do is a 50% WC which depends on the tank's current "cleanliness" before leaving. They'll be fine, I assure you. Just be sure they're well fed (or if using an auto feeder, set it to feed less than typical to prevent spikes). Hope this helps. Have fun and good luck with the goldies ;)

Assuming your tank is fully cycled? You have a lot of tank there for two goldfish. You should be good. Enjoy your vacation.
