    Hello and thank you all for your help on previous issues!

    I am worried that my goldfish's growth has been stunted. I previously kept him in a ten gallon tank due to space and cost issues for about a year. About seven months ago I upgraded to a fifty gallon tank. However, my goldfish has not grown very much in that time and I was wondering if this is normal or not.

    Thank you very much!

    Hard to say. What type of goldfish do you have and how big is it now?

    Don't worry as long as it is eating well and looks good.
