    Fancy goldfish grow 6-9 inches and need 20 gallons each.

    Common/comet goldfish grow tp 12 inches need 30 gallons each.

    If your fish are fancy you need a 100 gallons.

    For common/comet you need 150 gallons.

    Each atleast, more is appreciated.

    Feed them once a day a big pinch each. Upgrade asap or rehome until the stock is right.

    They can grow to a full size of 12 inches each.

    Bare minimum size is fry or 1 inch

    We all know through research that a baby goldfish of 1 inch does not warrant the need for a 20 per gallon tank period, each goldfish of under 3 inches only needs a ten gallon tank for movement & growth, anything else is pure exaggeration.

    What type of goldfish do you have? It depends. Goldfish get huge overall, however, I think 6 inches is about the bare minimum size.

    25 cm.

    that tank isn't big enough - you need at least 100 gallons for 5

    one goldfish needs about 20 gallons
