The below thread will show you how big different types of gold fish will get
When picking out a tank for them, you have to make sure it is wide enough for them to turn around very easy, as well as long and high enough for some good swimming space
If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Goldfish run anywhere from 4" at adult size to 12" so just saying goldfish is not enough.
I have a size chart in my signature. Check it out. OOPS. Cliff beat me to it.
I was thinking of some fantail, veiltails or some telescopes
Someone else may weigh in on but I would think you should be able to have some in a 55 gallon. Nothing smaller, tho, and even bigger would be better.
From what i've read, its not so much about tank capacity as it is about tank dimensions...
I wouldn't buy anything less then 36" long and 18" Wide, even that is pretty small and only for one goldfish...that kind of limits the tank capacities you can get though
With one goldfish
30 Long = 36"L x 18"W x 13"H
40 Long = 36"L x 18"W x 17"H
50 Tall = 36"L x 19"W x 19"H
65 Tall = 36"L x 19"W x 24"H
Any more then one Goldfish and your starting to look at HUGE tanks
Again, the kind of goldfish dictates tank size. All those you mentioned still will not work for the larger goldies. So to say a 36" will work for one goldfish is not correct information.
Hows that, those will definatly work for ONE SINGLE Comet or Common, the 19" width with the 36" length should be fine for an 8-10" fish, thats quite a bit of swimming space for them, thats almost 5sqft of swimming space
