I'm thinking about a goldie tank, I'm not going to buy it like next week but mabye in a few months if my grades are good, id like for my sisters to have a fish to call their own. so I'm thinking 3 goldfish, probably orandas.

I am thinking a 40 gallon would be OK?

and ill have more than adequate filtration.

if 40 gallons is more than enough space then would a school of minnows work?

White Cloud Minnows like lower tempatures. In the "GAllery" someone mentioned that these guys are good with Gold Fish.

Well, Orandas are going to eventually need closer to 20 gallons each than 10. I think 3 orandas in a 40 gallon is going to be pushing your luck a little.
I know this sounds bizarre and too conservative, but they are very massive fish.

yes I know they get massive, instead of lots of people putting them in bowls I want to actually raise them healthy so I can see what great fish that they are Smile

Just so long as your clear...40 gallons is NOT enough space to raise 3 orandas.

I have to agree with Sherry on the 40 gal NOT being enough space. Does it have to be organdas? 40 gal would fit 4 or 5 red rykens beautifully!
