I was actually thinking of switching out most of the substrate except for the mulm for some eco complete. I really wanna heavily plant this thing! I'll probably attach the anubias to a driftwood i'll be getting for the left side.

I read on another thread that the nutrients get used up in eco complete. And once they get used up you're stuck with it

Interesting. I thought there was some pre packaged bacteria that lived in eco complete that converted detritus into even more mulm. I'm torn between getting the iron and magnese supplement liquid for the plants or the eco complete...since i'm going to heavily plant this tank

Well I wouldn't be able to tell you for sure.
Do you really need eco complete to heavily plant it?

Lol I think a background would be a good place to Start but I think it's nice As is

What size tank? Atleast a 30 for two goldies... Unfortunately

Yep it's a 30 gallon. they will be the only ones there. I can evict the cory gang to another tank if need be....I just really want another goldfish

On another note, I just added some epic looking driftwood in the tank with two of my anubias attached to it. I'll post pics soon

@tarpon I think i'm deciding against the eco complete. I'll probably just keep it to hardy/non-demanding plants like anubias and java moss/fern and fertilize them with some iron / magnesium liquid fertilizers. I'm still trying to get my hands on that amazing looking narrow leaf java fern!

I saw a poor fantail the size of a baseball in one of the display tanks at petsmart today .....the tank was so small.

Anyway looking forward to the pics! I'm in the process of decorating my tank/planting it. It'll give me ideas!

I vote you should add an oranda I have 2 in my 29 and they are the greatest fish ever. They like to nibble my arms while I'm doing maintenance and swim through my hands. They're chubby faces would be a great contrast to your moor's adorable eyes

@sssea I'm def considering an oranda. they're amazing. a pure orange oranda would be an amazing contrast to kuro.
@tarpon and flossie here's a pic guys. There's a bubble wall in there too for oxygenating the tank but i turned it off for viewing pleasure. also, check out that sweet piece of driftwood! i'm probably going to replace the malaysian with the same type of wood as the other one but they're expensive as heck~

I am definitely still partial to the black moors. But I would love to have a big tank with just a few goldies in there. I inherited a 10 gallon tank from a friend recently with 2 lovely 5 inch orange and white common goldies in it. WAY too small imo, so I had to give them to my LFS. There was also an adult angelfish and a serpae tetra in there! Talk about crowded!
