High tech "Fish" fish bowl

So finally had some spare time today to do a much needed re-do on my nano tank boat book case fish tank. I also was lucky enough to get a few plants from a fellow hobbyist locally today so couldn't have been better timing. (Thanks tattooedfool 83!). Here's a before and after.



switch the light from the Deep Blue Solar Flare to Fluval 13 Watt compact florescent. Forget the name of the plant but it's fairly simlar to HC. Also added an Ista 45g co2 system. Don't mind the two goldfish. They will only be in there for a week or so until I feed them to my
Congo Puffer. Jut out them in there to help cycle a little.

He can't keep goldfish in there permanently, they will die.
I strongly urge you to remove the goldfish and find a suitable tank, because they are single tails they need a large tank, fifty five gallons would be a good place to start, plus they need a filtered and cycled environment.

It is cruel and inhumane too keep them in there, please do the right thing and provide suitable living conditions for them. If you have questions on goldfish care I'd be happy to help you out, just pm me.

I edited the post. I did a journal last night as well on my nano tanks and forgot to mention on this thread that the goldfish will only be in there for a week or two. Thy are feeder fish for my Congo Puffer and am simply using them to help cycle the tank. Thanks for your concern though! I'm a big advocate of putting fish in right size aquariums so I know where your coming from. This tank in the future will be used to house berried cherry shrimp and a place for the young to grow a bit before I add them to other tanks.

Believe it or not I found it tucked away in a corner at a HomeGoods in NJ while I was briefly living there.
