Goldfish tank size question. :D
This is a pretty quick question. I own a comet goldfish who's about ten years old now. He's pretty big, maybe ten inches nose to tail, and lives in a twenty gallon. Wouldn't a thirty or more gallon tank be more suitable? I'm trying to convince my parents the 20 gallon isn't so great for our goldfish.

A 55g is more suitable actually. The bigger, the better. If you can manage a 75g, good.

yes, larger than a 30 seems more suitable for a goldfish of that size...

Bigger is better, especially when it comes to goldfish. Comets can break a foot in length so if possible I'd go with the 75g, as that's the smallest size tank with a front-to-back measurement of over a foot.

Thanks you guys! I'll be getting my own place soon and I've already made reservations for a 120 gallon but right now I really must use a 30 or 35 gallon. (Any heavier and he'd fall through the floor. Currently I live in a trailer; we'd have to put supports underneat of it to hold the fish tank! lolol)

Wow! Master manipulator! I could hardly squeak a 50g past my parents :D

Well I've got to work pretty hard here too! Mom thinks that the reason all the info-places say he needs a better tank is because the bigger the tank, the more money--and the more profit wherever we're buying the tank from. I keep telling her, "He's obviously smushed up in there," but she won't hear it.
