Welcome to the forums man, I like the tank. Only thing I would change is the gravel, but that's only because I prefer natural colored gravel. Actually I would just it to sand, but that's just my opion.


I like everything else though, i'm sure your goldies are happy.

Hi, These particles often seen in newly setup tanks with natural gravel (you do not have natural gravel but maybe you did not wash them well) and there is not a problem, your filter would keep your tank clean after a day.

You have a nice tank, and I suggest you to hide your filter with placing your plant in front of it to see more natural.
