First of all, kudos on having a beautiful, healthy 5 year old glodfish! So many people take terrible care of them and it's nice to see it done right.
Like others have said, 20gal is the MINIMUM for 1 goldie. Some say 30, but I think that's more of a personal preference. About 35 would be the minimum for 2. You can "underfilter" if you add plants (like using a 30 gal filter in a 40 for example) which work as natural filters. Plus, there are plenty of plants they LOVE to munch on
I would also add a bit of decor for him to explore in. Plants, jars, and whatever you can come up with that wont alter the water chemistry is all good for him. He also needs a place to hide when he wants to be alone. Posted via Mobile Device
