Myself is a tyro in goldfish keeping . Via research , i postulate
tat the lenght of goldfish tank become the prevailing measurement in goldfish
tank. Myself have a 5 feet tank ( 30 GALLON ) , SO HOW MANY FISH I CAN
KEEP in my tank ? I have 23 fishes recently and the growth is kind of slow.
I perform a 10 percent of water changes daily to keep the water in tip-top
condition.

a 5 x 1 x 1 holds 30 gallons of water and seriously shar pei fancier home for 23 fishes is really more than a little cramp. I really hope there is a typo error.

8-10 fishes in a 5 ft tank is acceptable and provides ample space for growth....

honestly I also don't understand what the thread starter is saying/asking. Seacucumber, do note the 30gallon for the 5ft tank.

wah sei ... your maths getting worst.
1 US Gal only 3.79L

to get a 30G in a 5ft tank, that's a 5x1x1 special custom made tank with 80% filled. I used to own 1 for a long nice mini planted tank years ago.
