They only sift the surface trying to get algae. They never "dig" per se. Others do dirt and goldfish. I have never heard of anyone having their dirt dug up. Sorry, but this is the best I can do for pics right now. My crappy cell cam won't take a full tank shot with enough detail to show anything. The tank is still pretty bare anyway. My next step will be to mass plant a bunch of fast growing nitrate eating plants like water violet, water sprite, water hyacynth, Jungle vals, know. I want to plant so many the growth will outpace the fish eating it. I want them to eat the plants. Two birds, one stone, you know.

Ver. 1.0 80 gallon dirt goldfish tank (defunct)

Ver. 2.0 bare bottom same tank another approach (defunct)

Ver. 3.0 Pool filter sand same tank now

Farming Algae

Goldfish are among the worst fish for beginners.
