Great read. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I just started my 125 dirt planted goldfish tank, my first freshwater. I'll just be growing plants for a month or so before adding some small orandas. Hope they don't eat all the swords like yours did! Cheers.

Thanks hedge_fund!
I'm a big fan of them too!
=]

Thanks Andrew Goldfish, I would love to have a 125! I can't wait till the day comes that i can! I would only start out with one oranda or two, with dirted goldfish tanks it's good to understock and in a few months you will find another goldfish that you have to have...it's a vicious cycle that most goldfish keepers experience. Most of us find ourselves more overstocked than we wanted to be...

In my case I never really fell into buy more goldfish but the fish that I have grew huge probably because I kept it limited to two in the fifty five...somedays I feel as if it's getting to small for them....

Growing plants ahead if time is a great idea, let them get rooted in and acclimate before the onslaught starts, lol.

Every fish has different taste...mine even ate anubias and most people say that it's a goldfish proof plant....mine even just ate the dwarf water lettuce that used to cover the tank...it's all gone now.

Good luck with your tank, you should create a journal and share I love reading other peoples experiences =]

Yeah that's nuts...color is crazy looking. I think The Planted Tank Forum should have a tattoo forum/section for everyone to show off their fish tats, if they have any. I was going to put a pic of mine up here, but I'm not trying to hijack the goldfish tank thread lol

nice tank! I still think it's crazy that people can keep goldfish from uprooting or eating every plant in a tank

and wow your tats are great looking. the colors are really nice!
