Trust me, I have seen two comets kept in a 15g surrendered to a pet store. The owners finally got fed up because the tank stank so badly and both fish were about 8" long. By the time I saw them at the store their fins had rotted and their scales were falling off. They only survived for another 2 days after that.
Therefore the minimum recommended size is about 80g per comet, and as with all goldfish they require twice the filtration in gallons per hour that tropical fish require.
