I like the scape a lot, the tank looks very good

I also like the night light - interesting color (more used to blue) but reminds me of a sunset somewhat. Looks really cool

Love the scape, I think the goldfish could do some serious damage to the plants. There might also be conflicts between the goldfish's need and the rest of the fish temperature wise.

thanks the only plants they damage are the salvinia floating plants and goldfish can function fine in higher temperatures i did a cypirind fish farming course at college and we were growing them in water set to 27 degrees c with no ill effects i keep mine at 25 the natural environment of the goldfish is of a highish temp i observe equal if not better health and colour in heated environment vs temperate and also increases metablosim appetite and activity levels
