I think what BrnMix meant about harmful to plants is that if you saturate the water with air you can prevent CO2 from being absorbed into the water, and the plants need that to thrive and grow. I think that's the theory, anyway. Although since there is CO2 in the air as well, I'm not sure why an air stone wouldn't also put CO2 into the water. Probably oxygen just gets absorbed quicker than carbon dioxide.
Of course, for non CO2 injection tanks plants are recommended that either grow past the water surface or float on it, because contact with air enables them to get the necessary CO2.

Wow Amazing tank I would never think to see real plants in with gold fish. I thought they would move the stone around to much for plants. Nice tank and sorry to hear about your disease.

hello Architect1, thanks. it's not impossible to combine goldfish and plants. the hardest thing is to balance the ferts / CO2 to prevent algae as the fish' bioload is a lot.

So you don't have to do any ferts thanks to the bioload?

That's a pretty cool goldfish tank, makes me want to build one too!

what size is that tank, im thinking the "mystery illness" was nitrite/ammonia poisining, espicially if its a new tank. goldfish are super d"dirty " fish when it comes to the poop they release, it has a ton of ammonia in it.

ikuzo chose the right plants... The plants are too tough for them to nibble on.

The goldfish died probably because of stress from overcrowding.

watch your anubias. It's starting to turn yellow.. You might want to dose macros & micros... You do large water changes for the sake of the fish but the plants are suffering.

i used anubias, vallisneria, dwarf sag, bolbitis, and amazon swords.
the bolbitis and amazone swords didn't stand the high ammonia.

i tore the tank down anyway a week ago and moved it to second floor (i need the space for my new tiger tank). now i'm still too busy to set this tank again. it's in bare bottom state right now.

Agreed! Your bio overload can and will cause "disease" (ammonia poisoning) and kill your fish. I surprised any survived the spike. Very nice looking tank, just way overstocked to begin with.
