My swoardtail keeps fighting with my goldfish They have always got along but the goldfish lost a few scales because of my sucker's tail now the swoardtail keeps going after it what do I do?

Get a separate tank for the goldfish (or swordtail either or) these fish are naturally not compatible and putting them together endangers the lives and overall well-being of both fish. If you keep them together much longer the goldfish will probably be wounded by the swordtail, get an infection, and die. Hope this helps

How many 1.5 inch goldfish can a fiftyfive gallon aquarium hold?

Although the goldfish are very small and it may be tempting to put many goldfish in a tank that large, you have to resist these urges if you want your fish to be happy and healthy. Keep in mind that goldfish grow very large: 6-8 inches for the fancies, 6-12 inches for the more common ones. The rule of thumb "one inch of fish per gallon" just does not work with goldfish. A more accurate measurement of goldfish per gallon would be " for each inch of goldfish allow 3-4 gallons of water". Hope this helps- and remember though the fish are small now, they will soon grow very large and beautiful.
