I think the reason people hesitate to tell you an exact number of how many fish you can have is because it depends on the fish. A tank that could accommodate 10 guppies,for example, cannot hold 10 angelfish.

Can you tell us now what fish you have in which tank?
well i didnt get any more fish for my 10g tank its empty atm , but for my 50g tank i have 2 angelfish , 3 small gold fish , and 4 koi fish

gold fish

Hello there I have ten gold fish in a sixty litre tank and was just wondering if the filter I have actually works because they all seem to go to the top and was wondering if they needed another filter as they have not long been fed and also how do I use the weekly cleaner do I use it with the fish in ?? And also how do I use the chlorine bottle and the white spot bottle do I use them whilst the fish is in the tank would be greatfull if someone would help me please

well i think having 10 goldfish in a 60 liter tanks isnt really good , i have 3 goldfish in a 220 liter tank and i think that i have to give back 1 or 2 and for the anti clorine bottle u have a number scoops for every tank size it will be written on the bottle and put them while the fish isnt in the tank. and turn on the filter for 3 hrs after that ur safe to add ur fish to the tank

A guppy and a betta are not compatible. If you go to Fish Profiles and go into Livebearers, you can read more about guppies. They are good fish for beginners.

Catfish are an example of bottom feeders. You would want to get a bottom feeder that doesn't grow very much since it's a small tank. Go to Fish Profiles and take a look under Catfish. Check out any of the ones "Cory" in their common name. They stay pretty small. Do NOT get a pleco for your 10 gal (I'm sorry I am unfamiliar with the metric measurements.)

Julie, you should start a new thread with your questions so it won't get lost in this one. You might want to put "Gold Fish Filtration question" in your subject line.

You are going to have to separate the angelfish and the goldfish. I know you don't want to get rid of any of your new fish, but goldfish are not compatible with any other fish except goldfish. Decide which you want to keep - the angels or the goldfish and then find the others new homes or return them to the store.

On a temporary basis you could move the goldfish to the 10 gal to get them away from the angels but as someone else pointed out, that small of an environment is not healthy for them longterm.
