WOwie IMO that is overstocked. 50 gallons is minimum for the goldfish alone, add a 12" poop machine pleco and I think you are going to have a hard time, and so will your fish. Get another tank for your fishey friends!

In the Beginning: Didn't cycle my tank, only cleaned it once a month.
Had cold water fish in with tropical fish.
Changed my filters (gasp!)
cleaned the bio media with tap water (gasp!)
got a pleco and thought it would survive off of flake food leftovers (it didn't) in a ten gallon
put a feeder goldfish(1,2,3,4... they just kept dying and I kept replacing them!) in a 1.5 gallon (ugh poor things)
Oh my!I remember those times that I don't cycle my tank before putting fish

Oh those times when we think that what we are doing are good for the fish

Me too, I never knew of bacteria population in the tank back then.
