He his doing well and the tank wont stop growing. He barely has room to swim!!
I have some algae issues, due to sunlight and my planted plus 24/7. I bought light raisers to raise it up 3.5 inches.
He also keeps digging up the sand in the middle of the tank and exposing clay and dirt....I think the circulation pump doesnt help either.
I have many rip plants that are out of control too. I just added purple waffle. I can go a whole week without changing the water. My fish tells me when its time to be changed, he gets moopy. However my nitrates always read 5-10ppms. Something that i have NEVER been able to accomplish before. =]

Nice with the nitrates! Hoping to do that with my tank. Purple waffle is a great hardy riparium plant, I've had mine for a few years and its decently big (not tall but bulky and wide-actually so heavy it falls over-I have to use a some ss mesh to prop it up because I don't want to cut it) and it will have lovely little white blooms for you in time. If you trim it just replant it and wait, it will wilt a little but bounce back in 1-2 weeks.
Do you pull plants out form in the tank to give more room or just trim off some leaves here and there?

I pull the not so good looking ones/ older leaves/ algae riddled ones out to help with space. Something always needs pulling because they grow so fast!

Added a few new plants to the rip portion. My purple waffle is flowering! Plus I added spike grass from aqua aurora! And I also added Alocosia polly too.

Well, I tried to follow your lead in a 90G. My goldfish ate EVERYTHING I put in the tank, including some very tough Anubias!

Oh no!!!!
That is to bad, it definitely depends on the fish!
What were you feeding them, if you don't mind me asking?

WHAT? When did you get a 90g goldfish tank? and why have I note seen a journal for it?!
As for eating plants did you give the goldies another veggie source like cucumber in the tank or veggie heavy meals like soilent green from repashy?
