    OK, I have another question. After I take my large gold fish out of the 30 gal. tank can I put other small fresh water fish in the tank with out cycling it? How many and a suggestion of what kind would be appreciated. Thank you

    if you haven't taken the goldfish out too long ago the beneficial bacteria
    that live in the filter may not yet be dead and you will not have to cycle.
    the cycle is a process to accumulate bacteria in our tanks which then process fish waste.
    without a continous supply of fish waste they will survive for a couple of hours before dying.

    as for small fish suitable for a 30 gallon tank, there are more than can be mentioned.
    many tetras, danios, minnows, rainbowfish will work, as will smaller gourami species.
    if you want a challenge in terms of water quality upkeep then try dwarf cichlids such as
    bolivian rams or kribensis. google is your best friend here...

    +1 to google!

    Restock within 24 to 36 hours [Sooner the better] Before your BB colony starves to death and you will be fine.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
