My 29 goldfish planted tank.

First of all, i am a goldfish keeper who also want to maintain the natural look of the tank, so i went ahead and turned my plastic plant into live plant.

As far as goldfish tend to eat most of the plant, i think i was lucky to have a goldfish that did not bother any of my plant.

AH supply 55W + 40W stock light
150 Rena inline heater
5lbs CO2 cylinder, with regulator from Orlando. DIY CO2 reactor
Here the list of the plants that are survived in my tank

EI method. Half amount of KNO3 to keep the redness of plant. K2SO4 and KHPO4 are the same as recommended.
