Ok thanks!

I have a 55 gallon tank, it has plants in it right now but i am thinking about dumping it out and making it a goldie tank.

I need to find some Siamese dolls, they sound cool, would be interesting to have.

I have Rubbermaid utility tubs, are they safe for goldfish? I know some things have chemicals that leech into the water.

I also have a United Plastics utility tub

I have small ones of those (1-2" deep) not big enough and they are also buried out back, full of plants.

I asked my mom if I could buy a rubbermaid trough, she looked at me like im crazy
(I have asked for weirder things tho)

she said to ask about the two things we already have.

How big are the ones you have? The shallowest depth I'd go for goldfish is 6-8 inches.

They are 2-3 inches deep & filled partly with dirt, they are bog gardens. There is no room for goldfish in them.

the buckets I have are -
19" wide 17" deep (united plastics)
18" wide 14" deep (rubbermaid)

More volume is better but they're too tall for your goldfish. Most goldfish are too prone to floaty issues due to the pressure by extreme depth. You'll find tosakins, pearlies and ranchus are often kept in shallow water to minimize their swimming imbalance. In tosas' case, the flat caudal fin prevents them from swimming properly at all.
