Very striking tank! When I dive into aquatic plants, I hope I can do something half this beautiful.

Wow. I've never really appreciated goldfish very much, but honestly, i think thats because i've never seen them kept like this. This tank is beautiful. especially the plants.

Goldie Haven is completely built around the needs of the Goldies first. The filtration, plants, lighting, even the special substrate needs. The success of the plants and the fish are testament to this. Now, as the Goldies grow, the aquascape will need to change and evolve around them. The only permanent plants are the Ludwigia and the various Anubias species. The rest will likely need to be removed for their own well-being, but are excellent & attractive place holders for future plants which are growing & maturing into completely Goldie-proof specimens. Which plants stay and which plants go will depend on the personality of the Goldies -- some Goldies are plant destroyers while others aren't. As soon as a plant gets unwanted/destructive Goldie attention that is detrimental to the plant, it will be removed for its own survival. My vision for this tank is to one day be an Anubias species tank again with regard to plants (with possibly some Ludwigia and fern centerpiece plants).
Alright, enough of my additional yammering. I'm glad this aquarium was enjoyed =)
