Nice to hear such positive words about my fish.
I Bought them a year ago.. Don't know exactly how old they are. Embarassed
But I can say they were very small when I bought them ( 3 cm)..

BTW My tank is 70 liters.

Very Happy

is 70 liters small for goldfish? I heard to keep 1 goldfish you should keep it in at least a 75 liter tank (20 gallons)

The general rule of thumb for goldfish is ten gallons each. I usually use ten gallons each per fancy and twenty gallons each for commons and commets.

Not at all, guestt. If you stocked a tank that full with goldfish, most would be dead within the week.

False...go to my website.. http://www.msu.edu/~lucaski1/30.html
Many of you regulars probably remember these pics Very Happy ...but anyways, they've grown since the pics were taken..my big red would not even be able to turn around in a 10 gallon and you want to put 5-10 of these guys in one!? sheesh... *shakes head* Could you imagine the water quality problems!! I have a bad enough time keeping the water crystal with just the two in a 30 gallon!!!! Sorry if I step on some toes but it really upsets me to see these guys abused..afterall, goldfish were what got me into this wonderful hobby in the first place...

Edit: oops! got on a rant and forgot to post this too! Wonderful pics! I would definatly see about upgrading to a larger tank tho Very Happy Very Happy
