Hey guys, quick question.
In a few weeks, i want to get a new tank, somewhere between 55-90 gallons(whatever I find for a good deal)
I plan on getting the tank, doing a full fishless cycle, and then it will be my new goldfish tank.
I have seen a few really nice solid white fish in with the goldfish at one of my local fish stores, and I assume they're goldfish since they're labelled as such and kept in with the other goldfish, but they are all much bigger than my current goldfish, the fish I have right now are three goldfish between 2-4 inches, very similar in size, but haven't got a ruler to get their exact, and the goldfish I've been seeing are probably almost 7 inches.
If I put all four of them in a larger tank(the one between 55-90 gallons) will it be likely that the larger one would become dominant, or attack the smaller ones(he's big, but not big enough to swallow them as far as it looks to me)
I can't remember right now, but I think they were either comets or commons, and the three I have are two comets, and one common.
I also may get one or more golden weather loaches, and assume there is an inherent risk of the larger goldfish gobbling one of them up, but it seems like they would hide themselves easy enough.
And I also plan on slowly adding the fish, I want to add two of mine after I'm sure it's cycled, then the third one after a week or two, then the large one after another week or so, and then any loaches wouldn't be right away anyway.
Any words of advice?
Maybe getting an even larger tank upwards of 125 and get two or three more similar in size to my current three so that they can be seen less as an easy meal?
