This looks awesome. Those fish are fantastic!

I really want to do a goldfish setup also in a 75. Stocking ratio aside, I really like the look of the rounded river boulders in this setup...


I have thought that kind of thing could look really cool also with riparium plants above water.

How did the shipping work out ordering from Rain Garden? Was it real expensive? Your fish look really great.

Yeah, I've seen that scape, it is pretty (stocking aside lol.. That tank would need daily water changes to keep nitrates down with that many goldfish :p)

Rain garden has very reasonable shipping prices because they do 2 day shipping. I think it's generally 30-60 dollars depending on how many fish and their size.

Beautiful: yellow,orange, white, and green: great contrast.
Never thought of cold water fish in planted.
Your pets look happy and healthy.

Great job!

You should definitely look into goldfish! They really don't get the credit they deserve they're really fun fish to keep because they are so interactive.

Thank you fitting this 75 in my one bedroom apartment was definitely tricky. These fish have gone from a 29 to a 40 and now the 75 I'd love to get them into a 150-180 eventually, but I'll have to get out of this apartment first.

Thought the same thing.

I love your tank, the fish are beautiful.

I had a 45 high fancy goldfish tank years ago. They were beautiful, but def "dirtier" fish.

Good luck with this planted tank.

So here's the update

I got the 75 gallon tank, and then I moved. In the moving process all my plants unfortunately sat in a bucket of water for about 2 weeks. The only plants that made it were my mayaca fluviatilis (which you can see is growing totally out of control right now) and my swords (which have reproduced several times)

So unfortunately right now I'm in the process of buying the plants I lost and starting over. On the up side I am saving up for a 180 because we have enough room in this new house for me to have a bigger tank!
