55 gallon for two single tails?

Recommended Posts

There seem to be a wide range of opinions on this topic, so I thought i'd get a sampling of them. Is a 55 gallon tank going to be big enough long-term for a comet and a shubunkin? If not, and I get them as babies, about how long should they fit before I need to upgrade?

Yep should be plenty for room. Even a little extra left over. The recommendation on this site is 20gal/fish no matter if it's a fancy or single tail.

Sounds like there is room for a bristlenose pleco or some snails. Enjoy.

Shame on you both for encouraging someone to max out their tank!  (As if we  need encouragement.   :) )

Haha, I'd love a bristlenose, but might have to consider a heater first-- the goldie tank usually stays a bit below 70 :) They're the cutest though, so maybe someday!!

If you do get a bristlenose, get an albino BN. They are the smaller BNs. I prefer a female albino BN because they are less territorial than the males.

Bn or rubber lip both will work but I've not had much success with rubberlips. BNs are cool I have two in an 80gal one albino male and a green dragon female. I personally like the green dragon more. Oh both are the long fin varieties that I have.

They also have a red one now but they are a bit $$ for me.
