Karen do you mean goldfish with the large head growth? They could be Orandas or Lionheads (no dorsal fin). If the 2 fish are young small ones they can live happily in a 26g for awhile but will not be able to stay in it forever. As you watch the fish mature and grow I think you will know when it is time for them to move into a larger home.

Thanks, I am actually asking for a friend of mine, since her computer wasn't working. What would their "bigger" home be?

If the 2 fish continue to grow well and are Orandas your friend will need a 40 to 60 gallon tank minimum. Full grown Orandas should have at least 30g per fish if possible.

I forgot to mention the tank should be as long as possible, don't get the short box type for goldfish.

thanks... I looked them up and they're lionheads. In your opinion, what's the tank size for them (as adults)?

They will grow the same size as Orandas my fav, these are large bodied fish and I would say the larger the tank the better, 50g minimum for the 2 full grown. Also remember the tank must be as long as possible.

I should have also mentioned that the width should be at least 14" so the fish can turn around. A childs rigid plastic pool is ideal for these fish if you have a place to put it, it holds a lot of water and there are no corners so the fish can swim freely without stopping, of coarse a pool in the livingroom is probably out of the question.
