I think what you have now is potentially a fantastic super substrate and potentially a dangerous breeding ground for the new black plague. Sterile can be good... organic can be good...Who knows?!? I believe there is such a thing as too much dissolved organic matter in the water column, which you may be getting, but in the substrate...It's an interesting question for sure.

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.
