I've just measured the tank and it holds 27 litres of water.
The 4 fish are roughly all about the same size and that is 4" from nose to tail tip, so body size they are about 3" long.
I've had them about 3 weeks now and I have yet to clean the tank....!!!????
I remember as kids the gold fish we had used to dirty the tank a lot, but I am really surprised that the water is still very clear after 3 weeks. There is no signs of any waste at the bottom and I have left it clear from stones so I could check it.
I can only imagine the filter unit is doing a really good job and taking all the crap out of the water....
I plan to empty about 8 litres out of it at the weekend and top it back up but honestly I thought it would be worse than this....
My sister told me my mam used to clean it fully every week...was she over doing it?
