My Goldfish Tank-Goldrush

I shared this on the Tropical side of this forum. Thought some of you might enjoy it here as well.
It is a 90 gallon tank with a 29 gallon sump. No conventional filter. Rather, it uses a filter sock in the sump, and 4X large media bags full of Eheim media as filtration. Substrate is live Tahitian moon sand.Smooth stones from a landscape supply. Plants are artificial. Lighting is a bit overkill, as I used to keep this planted. They are 2X 54 wt T-5 Giesemann aquaflora. Now I just don't change the bulbs as needed for plants, since these don't grow.
Water returns with an external Blueline pump through locline.This tank used to be my saltwater reef.
2X Ranchu
3X Oranda
{butterfly was removed & rehomed due to heavy flow-calico ranchu passed..rip}
kuhli and sewellia loaches
1 olive nerite I have had for years
so without further ado..

Gorgeous goldies and tank. I'm going crazy trying to find your loaches though. Are they even in the pictures?

Probably the prettiest goldfish tank I have ever seen to be honest. They're so messy I always find the tanks don't look that nice. You did a good job!! (I think I seen your YT videos before and after you made your tank like this) small world!

That is an amazing tank, and beautiful fish. Fancy goldfish are one of those fish I would love to have but just don't have the space/funds.

This and olympia's goldfish tank have got to be the two nicest goldfish tanks I have ever seen.
