Thanks for all your input, Amanda. I am now giving some serious thought to how a backdrop type feature might be incorporated to add to the dynamics... perhaps emulating a large cave somehow.

To answer; the tank is a breeze to clean now. There is one piece of drift that has a shape which traps all of the waste under it. I clean that stuff up almost every day by sliding the drift over with the spihon tube then sucking up all the stuff it reveals. I get almost 100% of the junk in about ten seconds.

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

Ver. 3.0 Pool filter sand same tank now

Goldfish are among the worst fish for beginners.
