For a Fantail Goldfish you will need at least a 29-40g tank. Start looking at $1 per gallon sales or used to save money.

A Pleco ? Commons need about 125g

The Oto can stay in a 10g, I'd add 1-2 more Otos.

Zebra Danios ? 20g Long minimum...very active swimmers and hit 2.5-3"

Welcome !

Please research each of your fish and you'll see where I'm getting these tank sizes.

It's a great hobby !

This is an old thread, but lots of great GF info
Why fancy goldfish require big tanks- visual perspective

Also Solid Gold on YouTube has great GF vids with excellent tips.
