That intersting. I hate stunted fish. When I was younger my fish was overstocked 8 Oranda didnt grow any inch for 2 years mad.gif

Now I learn lesson as rule 1 fish to 10 gallons water smile.gif)

I like 75 gallons or 90 gallons. I will check at the shop to see what size like. yes.gif

I know bigger tank mean lot of work. Anyway I fell in love with Ranchu they look cute. I might have 3 tank maybe hysterical.gif

There are Bonsai Trees. So why can't we have Bonsai GoldFish? I have never bred GoldFish, but I think it is spiritually inhumane to cull. If I did breed, I think I would let the ones that I would not keep go free in a lake.

I have had them for over a year now. First they were in a 2.5 gallon, then 10 gallon, and now 20 gallon long.

They have gained some size when I compare them to the 2.5 gallon tank but I don't know, I feel like they should have gained much more in size.

I assume both are females, around 6 months ago one or both laid eggs. rusure.gif

Thanks hi.gif

im quite intrested in reading this thread becuase i really think there is an exception to this rule also known as my oranda.
i got my oranda from someone who had him in a bowl bought from wally world for buck 98. all i had was a 20 gallon put him in then overstocked it like mad (this was my first fish tank) wasnt untill 3 years alter i elarned about how to properly care for goldies by that time my oranda was already about 3 inches got an 80 gallon tank for him then read about stunted fish freaked out ebcuase this is what he looked like
IPB Image
but after moving him into the 80 gallon for a year he grew 2 more inches
and this is exaclty what he looked like just before he died alst week exactly the same but he was in fact growing quite nicely
IPB Image
this fish had the biggest eyes ide ever seen on a goldfish before plus his fins were very long
but i assure you he was growing very quickly and im posative had he not died of dropsy he would have gotten much much larger

Unfortunately, yes. My hunch is that the white fish will be larger than the red in time to come.

I feel its genetics plus the enviroment and feed rates .

Genetics aside ....if you are growing goldfish in a small tank with little filtration and low feed rates expect a small stunted fish .

My 4 are all cheapo fancy goldfish in 240 ltrs fed 5 times a day and heated to 20 degs c .

Doubled in size and now at 4 " from 2 " in a few months .
