personally, it is WAY overstocked. 105 liters is about 28 gallons and from what I can see, you have goldfish in there that will grow 5-9 inches, possibly more. Looks like you have about 13 goldfish in there, but its hard to count some of em. To house all these fish in ideal conditions, you should get at least a 500 liter tank with sufficient filtration. The size they are at right now though, it is still overstocked for that tank. Correct me if i'm wrong but it appears there is a pangasius catfish in the foreground. This is a tropical fish that should be in warmer water...but the goldfish should be in colder water. Sorry to be critical but I would consider bringing some fish back including the pangasius (which can grow 12"+) or get a larger tank so you don't stunt the growth of these beautiful fish.

hey way overstocked wat are thinkin not to mention the shark and all the ammonia that must be in there

i think it would look lovely if you took the shark back,
and reduced the gold fish population.

*ACK* :shock:

Goldfish need huge water volumes to thrive.

Recommendations for fancies are 10-20 gallons for the first goldfish and another 10 gallons per additional you'd be maxed out with 3 in a 28 gallon tank.

The tank is too small for your shark under any circumstances.

Actually this pic is much old. Now this aquarium is a marine aquarium.
