    Heres the fish I have presently...


    2 Shubunkins
    1 small oranda red cap
    2 pearlscales
    1 fantail
    2 snails (realy realy small)
    1 small wiptail catfish

    They are all small right now.
    I have a wisper 30 - 40 galon filter
    and
    a deep water airator attatced to 1-2 airation things like a treasure chest or
    large airstones or small air stones.

    The goldfish aren't going to stay 1 inch so that's totally irrelevant.

    Your shubunkin goldfish will get 8" - 10" and need about 30 - 40 gallons each. Orandas, pearlscales, and fantails all get around 6" and need at least 15 - 20 gallons each.

    So for all those goldfish, you're looking at needing about 120 - 160 gallons.

    If you can't get a larger tank very soon (within the next few months), I suggest getting rid of all but one of the goldfish.

    And to answer your poll, I have a pond that's currently 750 gallons (but will be made larger this spring). It currently has 2 fantails and a shubunkin (had 4 fantails & 2 shubunkins but there was a mishap with the filter :(). When I finish redoing it, it will be closer to 1000 gallons and I plan on keeping about 12 shubunkin & fantail goldfish and 1 - 2 dozen minnows.

    Your current fish should make it to June, but you'd be a lot better off just getting the 150 rather than upgrading every month or so. It will be a lot cheaper, less work for you (setting up a new tank and transferring fish is quite time consuming), and a lot less stressful for the fish.

    Yes, you can get by with a 55 for a while (maybe about 6 months or so). Then I suggest getting no smaller than a 130 gallon.
