Re: tank size
You'll be surprised how big these goldfish get. Fancy ones can still reach 8-10 inches so would they still like being cramped? Fishbowls are out of style and shouldn't even be sold anymore. These are rather discouraging for proper maintenance.

To me, and obviously I'm NOT an expert, the fish look like they are ok and have enough room.
Obviously the water quality is an issue, but a 55 gallon tank? I can't see them needing THAT much room!
