I had it set up with tropicals, Angels and Neons. Then Had some Cichlids for about 3 weeks. I missed having Goldies so i went back. I'm a sucker for Fancy Goldfish!

I have changed the tank again, kind of, and have now added 2 more Orandas. Here are some pics:

I will be adding 2 Bristlenose Plecos in a couple of weeks.

How big is your gravel? I always heard that it was best to use a bare bottom with goldfish. I'm still new at this, and only have a pond at the moment, but I have an aquarium on the way and would like to use some gravel... will have 2 baby koi, 1 goldfish, 1 pleco, and possibly 6 gourami.

The gravel in that picture was actually small river stones. I have since changed it again and gone with small black gravel. The live plants were not doing well with the river stone.
Becareful with what you add to the goldie tank. The only pleco's that should be put in with goldies are Bristlenose and rubberlip. I would also not recomend mixing the gourami's, goldies are cold water and need much different water parameters.

Thanks for the tip on the pleco... I'm not sure what kind I have, but it has been in the pond with the koi and goldie for 2 months now with no problems.

I would keep my eye on it, once it gets bigger you may be in for problems.
