Gotta love keeping 3 goldfish in a 5 gallon tank…

no filter, no aeration…

They've got plenty of filtration and gas exchange. That's what the single plant is for /s

I find amusement in some of these presentations.  Having found it a few years ago, my favorite remains the Balanced Tank. 

Four things that I might have learned from watching these educational videos:

  • Building a slope into your substrate will cause the waste to slide down to the bottom, making it easier to remove. (This actually works with tomatoes in my garden)
  • I need a sprinkling can with "many small streams of water" to aerate the water before it goes into the tank. 
  • Black Mollies are so called because they are black.
  • Angelfish are Moonfish

It's interesting to see how some info still sticks to this day, and especially the technology.  The glass suction cleaner from yesteryear compared to the gravel vacs of today.  But man did they love overcrowding their tanks and placing them near windows without a care in the world for algae!
