Funfin... I have a canister rated at 2000lph, 4 internals that are about 250lph plus a hob rated at 600lph. In my canister I have Matrix, plastic drinking straws, bits of sponge and bioballs, though I intend to remove the bioballs for more matrix eventually, the internals hve sponge, Purigen and Matrix and the HOB has sponge.
I put the stones in there to allow them to use their natural behaviours but not so much that it creates a problem with waste, and the java moss is so soft that they love playing in it and nibbling any food that falls on it.
I once had a tank wih gravel and stony substrate....NEVER again, it was a nightmare, my hat is off to those who do it but it is definately not something I can maintain. I hope one day to have an indoor pond probably in the next couple of years, certainly when or if they get to those huge sizes, should be a blast to do!

Thanks for the info. I'll be setting up a125 gallon tank in the spring. Your tank has given some ideas for set up. I agree gravel is a pain to clean but I want my goldfish to have something to forge around in. You have found a happy middle ground.

Thanks Tiari! My goldies are my family so I have to do all I can for them. They are happily munching on some Broccolli at the moment, it's funny, they have this huge tank but love to congregate where they know the veggies go!...too funny!
