At least a 20 gallon for the goldfish. Lots of surface agitation for oxygen exchange. Feed it sinking goldfish pellets to help avoid swim bladder problems. Really good filtration needed and lots of water changes. They're poop machines :)

Ottos are shrimp and shrimplet safe. The goldfish is not.

Best regards,

Stuart
