    Well that was what i planned to do but was fairly satisfied with the PVC XD It was 3 PVC's connected together, In the middle was a 3 way PVC to kinda divert the flow. Is it fine that way? or should i redo?

    I've no idea without seeing it. I'm not sure what a PVCXD is. Do you have a photo of how you have it set up?

    Ah right, ok. That's unusual to have the pipework all underneath the water like that.

    On an unrelated note, your tank is quite bare. Perhaps add a bit more, e.g. caves/branches to enrich the environment a little bit for the fish.

    I know, but it still works though! :) will try to change it with what you suggested later on. and yes, i'm quite working on funds for that! don't worry. Anyways, filtration wise would both my Goldies thrive? i'm still quite a bit confused and worried as i've read on every forum. It'd be okay to house to Goldies in a 30g, or does it really depend on what kind of Fancy Goldfish you have?

    In all honesty, I'm not sure. For goldies I would aim to have at least three times the filtration of your tank size. i.e. for a 30G tank you want one rated for 90G. Although twice the rating is the norm for most people on here.

    What sort of filter media do you have? Ideally you want the biological filtration part to have the maximum surface area.

    Well, did some research about the filter that I currently have. Turns out that it can really pump out 800 L/ph as it is a 12w Pump/Power head, so roughly to an equivalent of 200 Gph, go figure. The media that's inside the box is some bio balls, filter floss? and 2 large pieces of Sponges from Filter Sponges.

    Sounds ideal.
