!Goldfish In 100 Gallon Tank
(150000):strip_icc()/IMG_3510-c2c3dd61b87e48978c34754c26a5f22e. jpg (JPG) Goldfish are messy fish with large appetite and low feed mass conversion. Standard goldfish can grow up to 16 inches long and need lots of room to swim.
A 20-gallon tank is just the start! As the fish grow, expect to upgrade to a 50, 75, or even 100-gallion tank. Goldfish require a large swimming space and lots of filtration. If you have a standard, long-body goldfish, your filtrate should be slightly larger than what is recommended for the tank size. Baffling or redirecting filter outflows to the longest angle of your tank is best. Gold fish do not grow only according to the size of their crate. Terrible water quality and ancient flake diets have perpetuated this myth. In an appropriate environment and with a good quality diet, expect your fish to reach full size within a few years. How do you know if your goldfish needs a bigger tank? The best feeding practice for goldfish is to feed a pelleted diet with 30-35% protein. A high protein diet will cause your gold fish to grow big faster than if they were on a lower protein diet. Overfeeding a low protein diet can also lead to rapid growth. . . .
