Hey there, tank looks great. 50l is a bit under 15 gal, which might be too small for two goldfish further along. The usual rule is 20 gal for the first goldie and then 10 gal for each aditional adult fish. Good filtration will obviously help, but goldies are messy. Beautiful, but messy. You will probably be craving to upgrade in a month or so anyways. Lol.

Not after the fortune I spent on this one I won't!

There's, what, 2.5 inches if fish in there, which I reckon is fine at least until they get bigger.

I cannot win eh? Had way too many people say 'oh you should get three fish!' 'what? Only two? In a 2 ft tank?' Thought I was crazy when I said I was getting two. LOL!

What are your tank measurments? Did you calculate it or were told it is a 50 lit tank?

Many people use the adult size of the fish they buy to determine the size of tank needed. That's his point. He's being nice and wants your fish to be really happy. If you're like a lot of the people here you might get the urge to make a fish paradise for your goldies. It's one of the uncontrollable hazards of fish keeping.

I realise that I know they will eventually grow to 6-9 inches.

By calculations. I just double checked, and it's 51.3l. The shop said 60 (which may be full internal volume), same shop that actually FORCED me to buy bacteria after I said I didn't want it, they threw it in without me realising! Needless to say I angrily got my money back and have never trusted anything they say.
