Hi. I have 4 Goldfish. I feed Them every day, three times a day. I have had One Goldfish for three years and it is only 4'' inches. Is my goldfish Stunted? Will she or he Grow bigger? also all of my other fish are in a twenty gallon tank two in one 20 galoon tank and two in the other. I did this recently Any suggestions please post here. Is it possible For my fish to grow as big as a foot, because I heard all Goldfish can if they live long enough. evenFancy goldfish[/b]

All Goldfish will grow over 20 cm and IMO they all need a spacious tank, 400 liter and up. It is very likely that your fish is stunted. Try getting a bigger tank or give the fish to a pond keeper that lives close to you so you can come every now and then to check on them Wink .

Kind regards, Dusko.

I agree with Dusko. One fish needs at least a 30g, and even in there he/she will not reach 20cm.
