Hello,

I am currently raising 4 baby goldfish. They are about 4 months old. They were growing fast for the first month or so, I was feeding them 3x per day. Now I've been feeding them 2ce per day but they've stopped developing. 2 still have the olive green colour and are still quite small. They are in a 5 gallon tank. I am feeding them crushed flakes and crushed pellets for goldfish and occasionally some brine shrimp. Any ideas how I can get them to continue growing, right now they are stalled.

The tank is far too small.
Up them to 20 gallons which should last a couple of months or go much bigger right awayr & do daily water changes.
Goldfish get huge and need huge tanks or, ideally, ponds.
