hmmm makes sense, i found some stuff called seachem headstart, it includes, prime, stability, and clarity; anybody ever used these before? if these last three dont make it im going to restart and maybe try using the stability for my next fishless cycle. if they do make it, i want to get maybe one or two koi for them to chill with.

Koi can get 24 inches. But the growth process all depends on the space they are in and the food they are given. Can take years.

Ok so I've gotten my ammonia test kit and tested it 3 days ago. The ammonia was at 2.0ppm ( yikes ). I've done two water changes since and when i woke up this morning, i'm at 0 ppm. If it keeps below 0 and my water stays clear, can i get 3 more fish for my tank? I have one lone goldfish in a 55 gallon tank atm. He's so lonely, i named him felix, i guess hes a guy, have no clue about fish and sex. Hes been alive through the deaths of all his brothers ( all 8 of them ). Ive tried to keep the tank as stable as possible. Im wanting a Pleco and 2 Koi sub varieties of fish, thats all that will be in the 55 gallon tank.

If that one fish can get it up to 2 then its not a good idea. I also wouldn't get koi. You could do so much more with that tank.

Pretty much anything that's not a fin nipper or aggressive. You gotta remember the goldfish take up like ten or 20 gallons. Then base the rest of your stock on the remaining
