So I am upgrading my goldfish into a bigger tank, anywhere from 45-75, and I want to get more goldfish to keep my lonely oranda company. I want to buy goldfish but I don't have the budget to spend more than $50 per fish, but I want quality goldfish. I've looked into every breeder I can think of but I don't know if there are other breeders I haven't heard of. My tank however is going to be a planted tank and the goldfish will share it with ghost shrimp and white cloud minnows. My project is to make a no maintenance fish tank where it will not frequently need water changes, not need a filter, not need to scrub algae of the walls of the tank. My plan was to do a small layer of dirt on the bottom of the tank, than add a thicker layer of natural colored gravel and sand. I wanted to add in some bigger stones and larger pieces of drift wood, then add in a bunch of plants for the fish and shrimp to feed off of. I know I can't put to much wood in the tank because the fish need a lot of space to swim.
