A ghost shrimp MIGHT be able to evade the ever hungry goldfish. In doing so, it would certainly evade you as well, so one might ask why bother... know what I mean?

Assuming you take good care of your fish, those goldfish are on borrowed time in that tank, so I hope you'll be able to accommodate their growth with a much larger tank in the not so distant future.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Danios and goldfish are not a good mix as its likely once the goldfish grow up they will est the danios. Comet goldfish grow up to or in excess to a foot in length, and as a result a 25g isnt an appropiate long term setup. Ideally your looking for arpund 75g for one goldfish and then every additional (which is reccomended as they are social) 20g. Its commonly reccomended to keep goldfish in a large pond or at least a 125g.

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.
