I have 5 tanks now (one shrimps only, one 20G nano reef, one ADA 90P planted, and one goldfish tank), but it's my first tank journal (since day 0).
As goldfish were my first love with fishes (actually, they was a gift where everything started) it always been my errors tank (too hot for them, overstock, etc.), so, I want to replace it now with completely new built to please my girlfried (she want feng shui tank with 9! goldfishes) and to pay tribute to my first fishes.
So, my target is to build "dream tank" for very very
happy goldfishes and beautifully looking aquascaping.
Tank going to be planted, heavy feed, and (you know) it requires some huge investments in filtration and algae prevention (as I want to have white sands beach inside, to make it more challenging).
So, here is the setup:
Display - 115G 30" Cube with built-in overflow from Advanced Acrylics
Sump - 29G ProFlex Sump Model 4 from Aqueon
Return - http://www.amazon.com/Jebao-DC-9000-Return-Pump-Aquarium/dp/B00INTDJD0 with http://www.amazon.com/Jebao-Neptune-Systems-Controller-Linkage/dp/B00P6JJKF6/ref=pd_sim_199_6?ie=UTF8&refRID=0MXBYJDVWYXX853GBK39Media Reactor & UV feeding: Eheim 1000 Compact Pump
Air: ALITA® Linear Air Pump
with 3 outlets manifold
(everything in the sump):

8 gold goldfishes + 1 black goldfish (as feng shui rules)
