The one at the top? It's a newly set up tank with daily water changes. Soon after that the diatoms took over and made it a brown mess lol. The tanks inside now. I will get some pics when the lights come on (it just after 6am here).
With good filtration, clean water and not too much light any tank will be clear.

Bad pics but here they are. There is one more but he's in a hospital tank.
The gold one is Charlie, black moor is Francis, ranchu is Percy and the silver oranda is Fenton.

Yes it is.
Made it to contain the gravel from the old tank I got some of my goldies from. They only had one tiny internal filter so IMO most of the BB would have been in the gravel so I used it in the filter to seed the new tank.

There were two filters. Both cheap powerheads from eBay so I don't know the brand names. One was 400L/h and the other was 1100L/h. The stronger one definitely worked better for the goldies. There are heaps of how-to videos on YouTube for DIY bottle filters. Smaller ones can be air driven for fry tanks.
