    Hi!
    So from what I know, goldfish are social and are usually kept in groups. At the moment I have a single Lionhead I keep in a 20 gallon. The tank is clean, fully cycled, and maintenanced regularly, so would it be worth it to get her a little friend, or is it best she go it alone?
    I’d say, by estimation, she isn’t even over 3” and has almost no wen growth.
    Thanks! Let me know what you think!

    Yes, I would get her a friend. The standard for fancy goldfish is 20G for first and 10G for each additional fish. You can keep them in the 20 for now but will need to move them into at least 29G as they grow. The 29 has the same footprint as the 20long.
