One 10w CF bulb
Eclipse Hex 5, air pump and stone
None introduced yet.
Inert gravel mixed with laterite.
Ammonia: 0 Nitrite: very low Nitrate: 30ppm (before last water change, haven't tested since) 78 degrees F
Tetra Flora Pride, laterite
Java ferns, anacharis
One zebra danio and 1 small Oranda goldfish (I know they aren't supposed to be mixed but the danio's just placed there temporarily).
It's been up for a few weeks now and is developing a diatom problem (as to be expected), so I'm reducing the light exposure period to about 6 hours a day.
Goldfish Rule of Thumb: 20 gallons for the first goldfish and 10 gallons more for every other goldfish.

i think it's okay to keep a single small goldfish in a 5g... assuming 50% water changes are preformed weekly, and there is a long term home available for the fish. i know someone who keeps three in a 12g for his little sister. when they get too big he moves them to his pond and replaces them with little ones. it usually becomes a problem when the fish is the size of the ornament and nobody can remember the last time the water was changed. :P

No it is not ok. That tank is much to small for even one goldfish. No matter how much water changes you do.

A pair of cherry barbs would give good color and movement and be much more in line with the size of this tank.
