When I was a kid I had about 5 fancy goldfish in a 10 gallon and I just changed all the water every month or so. And you had best bet I changed the filter pad out every month like clockwork...

I did something similiar. I had a 40g pond in one of my patios and I had like 8 goldfish in there and I would change the water around every 4 months. I don't know how they all lived. When I was little I also had four inch goldfish in a like 5g bowl that I had had since she was a little feeder fish until my mom gave her to some lady with a pond

Goldfish sins are endless. I heard of a person who kept 5 goldfish in a 5.5 gallon walmart starter kit tank. (Don't tell anyone, but that was my grandfather!)

Yeah, there's just so much misinformation about them. Everyone thinks they are fine in a bowl. And I wondered why mine never grew...

Sin #1 Completely taking over my husbands fish-keeping hobby
He was slowly killing them due to his lack of experience and refusal to research.

Sin #2 Telling my husband the Firemouth Cichlids had to go back to the fish store temporarily so I could clean the water up for them; they never came back. They were not compatable with ANY of the other fish in the tank, let alone eachother! I couldn't stand it! I did convince him into a different cichlid to replace them though

Sin #3 Telling my husband I'm going to the gym for an hour with other intentions; Gym 15 minutes, Fish Store 45 minutes. Get home and quietly sneak the bags with new fish and/or new plants into the tanks. Acclimte them secretly. By the time he notices everyone is in their place. He stares at the tanks confused but assumes I just re-arrange the tanks again.

Sin #4 Buying 6 $40 Roseline Sharks and sneaking them in the tank. By the time my husband noticed them, the rummynose tetras were moved. He assumed they were the rummynose getting bigger. I never said a word! Just kept watching the movie.
I'm kinda a little upset/sad, i picked up my 7 roselines for $7 each at petsmart, but my sin is keeping them with
30 neons
8 pristella tetras
6 serpae tetras
4 lemon tetras
8 assorted cories
3 loaches
1 longfin albino bnp
5 longfin danios
4 betas
3 Celebes rainbows
2 bosemani rainbows
and I'm sure I missed one or two off the top of my head
