Wink I need YOUR help!

Ok... Im getting a friend for my gold fish. It was acting a little wierd yesterday and didnt want to do anything but sleep. It had no bumps or fin tears or anyhting to suggest illness, so I got my water tested. That was fine. I know it had acted this way before when it was lonely, and Ive finally decided thats what was wrong, cuz when I say hi to him or feed him he acts perfestly fine and is very excited. So I have decided to get him a buddy! And I cant decide what kind to get!! They all look so SQUISHY, but I con only get ONE!!! Nooooooooooo!

Any way, here is my current fish, Angel: http://s182.photobucket.com/albums/x...t=IMG_0846.jpg

The variations of goldies that I want most are...

Im also open to Pearl, Lionhead, Pom-Pom, Fantail, ect, but I can NOT have a Shubunken or comet, or anything that gets huge, cause my tanks is only 20 gallons. And 20 gallons is acually rather small when it come to goldies.

And for anyone whose wondering, yes i did my research to make sure it is safe to get another goldie, and I tested my water too to make sure it was safe! And it isssssss! Yay!

Sooooooooo, what should I get?

I personally like the Oranda, but I've seen some huge ones before , so I think you should go with the bubbly ones. And then you can train then to play underwater soccer together. Yay

I think you should just go to the store and pick which one you like best .

Whenever I decide to get a certain fish I almost always come home with something different .
