I know right!
Well to day i did a water change on the tank and i added the other jungle vals that came and they really fill up that end, its quite green!
I will post pictures tomorrow night so the water will be all clear.
I am also going to be picking up an albino bristle nose pleco for this tank, hopefully it will be a younger one, i like when fish grow up in the tank because they learn the rules of the tank!

Careful. They attack and even kill goldfish sometimes.

Yea that's true about sands giving problems to goldfish. larger pebbles are better. in fact pebbles are good for them, so when they have some kind of indigestion, they'd swallow some pebbles and the pebbles help to dislodge some foods in them and they spit it out. that was what i was told by the lfs owner. not sure it's true or not.

Hello!
I have been dogsitting all week and i havent been home to observe my tank, my mom and dad have been feeding them but they didnt get any fresh veggies though. So today i went home and found that all of the corkscrew vals had been mowed down, theres like a half and inch of them left and a jungle val has been pulled out too so when i do my water change i need to plant again!

Lesson learned, always give them fresh veggies or they will eat the corkscrew val!!!

Sounds like they got their fresh veggies all right. Have you tried scolding them?
