Sorry to hear about your bad experience here, Its not too bad once you get used to it
I was hoping for a 55 gallon, I have one oranda and three fantails, they are fairly small at the moment. Do you have any suggestions as for what type of tank would be best for them, I have done a lot of research on them to figure out how to best take care of them, but this is the first webpage that actually gives practical advice. When I got started keeping the fish the petstore employee told me 5 gallons was good for one fish. So I assumed that 29 was good for four! Also does anyone know what brand and type of filter works well?
