Getting New Tank!

Tomorrow I will be getting a new tank for my 2 goldfish because they are outgrowing the 10 gallon I have for them. I was thinking about a 40, 50, 55 or even 60 gallon tank. I want to be able to put maybe one or two more goldfish in my tank. Any suggestions?

I agree 60gal and heavy on the filtration. I'd go with 2 x gal capacity filter and two extra large sponges.

Stick to fancy goldfish, no coments

I got a 56 gallon with a 400 GPH Filter. I plan to put 3-4 fancy goldfish in there.

That won't be enough filtration for four fancy goldfish. 8-10x your tank volume an hour is recommended for goldfish. You should look into a sunsun canister.

Only problem is those are really expensive.
