    Orange: Sweet Potato, Flame, Sunburst, and Fishy 1
    Grey one: Smoky, Cloudy, Storm, Aluminum, and Fishy 2
    Grey and orange: Galaxy, Supernova, Castiel, and Fishy 3
    Beautiful fish, hope you like one of my names!

    P.S. If you name one of your fish Castiel and someone smiles strangely at you, back away slowly and say "It's not what you think it is" :)

    I'm not an expert on goldfish by any means but I can tell you from my limited knowledge that common goldies can get over a foot long, need like 40 gallons each, and honestly should be kept in ponds. I hope you have a large enough tank to accommodate them...

    And as @Plecomaker asked, is that a red tailed shark?

    EDIT: Ah, okay, it's not.

    Hmm, names...
    Orange: Sweet Potato is cute :) Tangerine, Sunrise, Sunset
    Grey: Stormie, Rain, Smokescale, Evening
    White-orange: Sunny, Crystal, Splatter

    Just wanted to point out because I see it now, that if you look in the reflection on the bottom of the bag it's a goldfish. But I may be wrong. I was thinking about asking the same thing, what size tank/pond?
    Edit: haha just saw your edit.:p

    Ohh ACTUALLY call the grey one Eigengrau! Its the colour of grey that the human eye perceives when there is no optically observable light. And i think that's awesome.

    Platylover 50 gallon. I just posted the other day I may be getting a 10, but that same day we landed a $50 50, and bought it instantly :)

    We also got a trap door snail :)

    That's a great steal! I'm defiantly not experienced in goldfish, but I believe it's usually(I believe it's for fancys) 29g and an extra 20g per goldfish, but if you have two in each your set! But I bet TexasDomer will know more.:)

    Okay. Introducing: Sweet Potato, Nickel, and Comet!!

    If they're fancies, 50 gal might be okay for 3. But if they're comets or commons, it's not big enough.
  14. OP

    Olivia67Valued MemberMember

    Google says 30 for one, and an additional 12 for each other. I'm only 4 gallons shy.

    Pretty goldies!

    Comet is very unique looking! She was the only one like that out of around 200

    They have 50 gallons to swim in, and they're huddled together towards the corner

    Again, for fancies that will work. But if these are comets or commons, they need much larger.
  19. AichmalotizoWell Known MemberMember

    That is specifically for fancy goldfish. Like black moor, lion head, oranda, the short bodied, weird headed ones. Those look like common goldfish, and they need, need a pond. Get about a foot long, and are pooping machines.

    How about Piglet for the orange one?
    google is not always right.... I agree with the above posts, fancies need 40g min.

    edit: already named.
