Think it's better for the goldfish if you can just buy one of those big Toyogo plastic storage box and just use a simple sponge filter to keep them.

Yeah bro first time keep GFs and wifey said she likes that one then we just bought it. Only to realize later that's its a bad bad choice for those GFs. :-(

But Toyogo tub with airstone is a good idea. Drawback is cant see the GF, only can view from the top.

Solved the issue of "restless" goldfish, now only time to get tank upgrade next. Now they always can rest still in the middle or bottom of tank

Oops, sorry brother, overlooked your offer, bought an air pump for them from Y618 2 weeks ago with air stone. Should have contacted you for offer :eek:

To my surprise, that built in OHF spoilt after slightly more than 1 month of usage, no warranty card given, and I wonder the LFS I bought it from (Xing Xing) will accept replacement or repair or not, but I supposed it's cheap stuff, so I didn't bother much but go straight to purchase a Shiruba air pump for that 6 GFs.

Now they seems happier and swim around, but I still find it way too small for them, and I'm constantly looking for best quote and best timing to house them in a bigger tank with Air Stones and perhaps a new OHF for them.

Planning for a 3 (L) x 2 (D) x 1.5 (W) tank by end of the year, it should fit my budget better as I have tighter budget (Wife complaint fishkeeping is just as expensive as photography based on what she observed we hobbyist spent on fishes and the equipments/food/tank).

Already bought a 4 feet tank with sump from a reefer. It's an internal overflow system to the sump. Just done bleaching main tank and now half way bleaching sump. Will continue with vinegar soak tonight when I get home. Will run the main tank without sump with air stone first. Maybe temporarily use the Hydra 20 to help a bit though its not strong enough.

Things will get better once I gotten a pump for the sump and get ready the basic medias.

Thanks Longyi!

Yeah, been trying hard to get those fishes a new home. I want to see them swimming happily in their new home too.
