Two New Tanks

OK, so, i have amzingly had this pair of feeder goldfish for about 7 years now and ive never heard of that before. Anyways, i have them in a five gallon tank along witha pleco and they seem to be doing fine. I have been thinking about getting two new 10 gallon tanks and ptting them in one tank possibly with one other compatible fish and then putting a pleco, an aquatice frog, and a newt in the other. I was wondering if anyonw had any suggestions for one more fish to put in with the frog, newt and pleco. PLEASE all of your posts will be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome,

I recommend one goldfish should fit in a 30 gallons tank as they can poop a lot. Not to mention their size may reach more than 15 cm.

Your tank will be overstocked if you add plecs(also big poopers), a newt and a frog.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

If you are going to upgrade, why not go larger? As you know, this is a very addictive (and rewarding) hobby. The biggest tank you can afford will be better for your fish in the long run, and you can always put a newt in the smaller tank :)

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
