filter for 10 gallon tank
Im looking into starting a 10 gallon goldfish tank with 1 fancy goldfish.What would be a good filter that can be found at Petco or Petsmart for this tank.And what else would i need besides the tank and filter.Do goldfish need any lighting.Im pretty sure they dont need a heater.. correct?

Before you start the tank: even for one fancy goldfish, you'll eventually need something on the order of 30 gallons to house it. I would look into getting a 29 or 30 gallon tank instead of the 10 gallon if you plan on keeping the goldfish long term. For a goldfish, I would want to filter the tank at least twice the "recommended amount" for a tank that size in order to take care of the massive amount of waste a goldfish will produce.
