stagius the tank is still alive. But life keep buzzing me, so I tried to leave the tank as simple as i can. Thank for asking thou.

The heater is to help the temperature stay constant. I don't think heater will hurt my tank in any way.

dekstr Hey stagius,

Your goldfish tank is very well done!

It gave me a lot of ideas for what I could do for my future goldfish planted tank.

I like how organized the cabinet and equipment / ferts / food are! The plant selection is very good, I will keep it in mind.

Tabatha That is the best looking goldfish tank I've ever seen!

stagius Look like I got a well behaved goldfish. Maybe he is lazy to mess up my plant.

deleted_user_4 I tried this with goldies before and mine really loved to dig, even if I fed them once or twice a day. Looked like a warzone all the time, with plant bits everywhere and floating plants that weren't supposed to be floating.

Eventually I took everything out and left just the hard-scape.

stagius I rarely him gasping at the surface for air, even in the morning.

I think he got plenty of O2 during the day when plant photosynthesized. At night, I run an airstone just in case O2 run out.

If the goldfish always gasp for air, I would say it related to swim bladder disease, where it is difficult for them to swim down.

volkracing99 Just wondering, is your goldfish always gasping for air?

stagius Few day ago, I decided to go to pressurized CO2 route. I ordered a regulator from Orlando, and it came the next week. The regulator is solid and work so well, my plant pearling so crazy, which i never seen in my DIY CO2 setup.

Just want to share my happiness with u guys

A close look at the regulator and CO2 tank

Inside the stand.

Minor update for the tank

I will have riccia, HM, and dwarf hairgrass ship to me next week. Cant wait to do another scraping.

stagius Update,

I turn my low light tank into medium tank with DIY CO2. I now have AH light 55W over the tank.

As you can noticed, more stems plant was added. The ludwigia repens will be coming tomorrow, which is used as a focus point in the tank.

Comment please !
