, the biggest size)
Live plants (are goldfish diggers? Any specific live plants that are good?)
Sand/river rock substrate
So would this be big enough and a good setup? If not, what would you change?
Sounds good .
Goldfish will eat plant's as well as uproot them, but perhaps Anubia plant's attached to wood or stones with fishing line,thread,super glue, would have best chance of longterm survival.
Large sword plant's could work also if rooted well in fairly deep (3inch) substrate at back of tank, and two inches of sand ,gravel, at front.
Might also consider floating plant's as well .something like..Pennywort would be my choice.
