Show him the growth expectancy list in my signature.
If you try to keep them for that 55 gallon, then it will have to be a cold water tank so that let's out others living with them other maybe some white clouds.

Ok the goldfish are out of my hands now. I was able to give away the last 2 of them Now to get rid of the eggs they laid in the tank haha. I feel so much better with them gone so now I can work to right this wrong. I mean I didnt know everything that had to be done, but at least I would have researched it before jumping the gun and coming home with fish. I am having a candle light vigil for my Pleco haha he has already improved with the absense on the goldfish who left a few hours ago.

Sounds like a case of somebody being unwilling to listen ... ! Well, looks like you handled it ... Let's hope he doesn't have a violent temper.
Fortunate fish in the long run, having gone to appropriate homes.

thanks for the concern
Yes the goldfish are gone to a tank already cycled and big enough for them. No my husband doesnt have a violent temper lol dont worry bout me we actually have never even yelled at each other our whole relationship so far. Thanks for the concern though. Yes normally I am the one flying off the handles with stuff. But not when it comes to animals. A living thing should not be treated so casually. Cant wait to actually sit down and plan the right course of action for my mini tank (10 gallons I have read is considered mini) i cant wait to have happy and healthy fish! They are more fun to watch than T.V.

I believe that this topic could be discussed without sexist remarks. I also dont think that assuming a normal man will become violent over aquarium stocking is a fitting remark
