I have 4 Wakin goldfish named: Eenie, Meenie, Miney, and Mo. Mo has the almost perfect circle on his/her head, Miney is the 1/2 orange, Meenie has the orange "shoulder" area, and Eenie is the spotted one. Sorry about the Christmas picture haha, my boyfriend decided to revamp my tank for me as a Christmas present haha.

It's a floor level 45 gallon. I have 2 family members with huge ponds for when they out grow the tank haha. My Leopard Gecko is in a 40 Gal Breeder above it, almost the same footprint length wise, so the stand works haha.

Sounds awesome. The Comet I've had for nearly a year is only 3-3.5" at this point. He went from a carnival fish (Ugh..) to a 2.5g bowl for two weeks or so with daily fin-level WCs, then to a 20L and now a 29g. A lot of reading you do on goldfish like comets, commons, etc, leads you to believe they grow like an Oscar. I feed mine quality flake-food, pellets and freeze-dried tubifex. My 29g barely shows any nitrates between weekly 50% WCs at this point with the comet and fancy in it. Water temp is basically room temp, which can range from the low 60F range to 80F in the summer. My point is, yours might take quite a while to outgrow your indoor setup!

Yeah I'm not planning on them outgrowing it for a while lol. People on this site like to yell at you for overstocking and not thinking ahead, so while it may be years out, they need to know I have plans haha.
