So the problem is keeping it in the tank into adulthood, or for 5+ years in the same exact tank....yah, thats not a problem for me, i do have a friend(actually brothers wives father) who has a rather large goldfish/koi pond, so after about a year or two(about 6inches i figure) it will be moving into there
So beyond that, with two water changes a week, gravel vacuuming and watching the chemistry closely(like is done with every fish) would a paradise fish or a school (5-6) of Rosy barbs be ok?
