NeonFlux Awesome goldfish tank pics updates! Can't wait until the plants behind begin to fill in and send runners within a couple years. Only a matter of time.

elfwise Just wanted you to know that the photo of your planted goldie tank is the reason I joined this forum. And a HUGE inspiration for what I'm looking to do sometime in the future.

In the process of building a 10 gallon tester tank ... to experiment with planting and see how much I can do before investing in the bigger one. Maybe 40 or 55 gallon. But OMG, this thread right here is my dream! I think I'd be happy if I had half the success you do with your gorgeous setup!

Do you still have the same organic soil/pool filter setup? I was looking into black fluorite or eco-complete but I've seen mixed reports on if it needs a cap or if you just plant into it. But does having goldfish root around in it make it a problem since it gets cloudy when disturbed? That and I'm almost afraid to use larger gravel as I've seen posts saying they like to mouth things and could choke on it. :S This feels like I'm preparing to have children! Ah!

xjasminex I also added two large mystery snails and two nerite snails yesterday. Hoping that the mystery snails are the kind that don't eat plants....

xjasminex Came home today to find a tank full of eggs...

Can you say happy fish =]

xjasminex My big goldfish are back in their fifty five!

They are so happy. They were swimming against the current of the circulation pump!

Bis will join his parents sometime in the future...when he gets a little bit bigger =]

xjasminex Updated pic from last night!

Here's a pic of the fry that I decided to keep!
I'm naming him Bis.

xjasminex Lol, yes Sam I wish it could! As long as I remember to feed them like the piggies they are then the plants don't get too beat up.

Hey! Thanks Tithra!

Now here are newer and closer up pics.

I'm probably about two weeks away from putting the goldies back in. They are going to be sooo happy they have been stick in the forty breeder for a very long time.

As you can see I also added more sand and them I added the other stones that I wanted in there too. I still need to clean the other river rocks and put them in too.

Sajacobs Looking good. Don't you wish it could stay that way

AquaAurora Can you post a photo of the above water plants (with better lighting so we can see them)?
07-17-2014 05:31 PM
xjasminex Yea, I see wisteria as a delicious snack for them.

The monsters are in a forty breeder. The plants need time to adjust, root and grow some before they start getting beat up!

Sword and crypts are the best for my goldfish. But they will eat awards if they are hungry.

I'm also rigging a toms aqua lifter to daily dose excel to help plant growth. I sick at dosing consistently. So that should help growth a lot.

vanish I stuck some extra wisteria cuttings in my tank with goldfish ... they ate every leaf.

PS: Where's the fish, I don't see them?

xjasminex Updated photo, bought more awesome plants from a member!

Hopefully nothing will melt to much!

Sajacobs Glad to hair the original crew is good.

Hope the tank pops back with plants in a couple of weeks.
