i always think that top view ranchu is for those who knows how to appreicate the swimming pattern and the grooming aspect of goldfish. surely u should know the best conditions for rearing tv alr before getting the tank. these best conditions will dictate the design of the tank. a mere 0.3FT difference seem insignificant if u are are just rearing for fun.

Hey Grossman,
I feel it very difficult to appreciate a top view from the side.
In fact, some look really ugly!
Why not also persuade her for another tub as well?

get a 5 x 2.5 x 2.5 ft instead, then tell your wife the delivery men made a mistake. If you really like side view, broaden up your choice, instead of only ranchu, include oranda, ryukin, black moor, pearl scale etc. imagine a 5 ft tank with at least 9 goldfish (combo).

5 x 2.5 x 2.5 ft?

Wouldn't the tank be too deep for goldfish?

How about 5 x 2.5 x 1.5 ft with 80% filled with water?

You wouldn't want your goldfish to dive into the water often.

For me I think 1 to 1.2 ft of water depth is just nice for goldfish.

If I've the space at home, I would custom make a 6 x 2.5 x 1.5 ft tank with 4 x 1.5 x 1.5 ft sump tank and cabinet for 9 side view ranchu.

That would be 188.78 gal of water if main and sump tank is 80% filled with water and around 20.98 gal/ranchu.

I cannot understand the 1.8 ft specification.

Let's see. One point five feet (ie, 1 1/2 ft) is equals to 18 inches.

How many inches is one point eight feet? Why is there a decimal point in inches?

I have a strange feeling they meant to say 4 feet x 1 1/2 feet x 18 inches, and not 1.8 feet?!

No? unsure.gif

Hey...

No one has an answer?

I guess I'm right then.

"1.8 feet" is actually "18 inches".
