My Goldfish/Plant Tank

Been a while since I posted so I thought I better give all that helped me so much an up date. The tank, fish, and plants are doing well. Some of the plants are growing like weeds, while others though not growing much are still living and green. The Otto's and rubber lips I put in are doing good at alge munching. I'm using Rex's dry ferts 5 days a week as per his recommendations. Here's some just taken pictures.

your tank is beautiful. because of the goldfish high bioload, do you have to alter the dosing regime?

No, i don't. I am way over filtered. Two 20 gallon fluid bed filters with 12 gallons K-1 each. Two trickle towers with 1500 shot gun wadds each, and four magnon 350s with carbon flowing 1400 gph back to the tank.
