Funny pic of the blog entry:

Frankly, it's really difficult.

I really want to do beautiful things to all of that space in my 55, but one 'rule' or another gets in the way.

I've spent a lot of time looking at aquascapes on youtube.

Sometimes, things get really hard. Sometimes I find some of the rules to be just irrational fears, but know deep down that they are practical for my situation. Or maybe it's the other way around, and I think they're practical but they really are just irrational. I don't know.

These three little precious pieces of my life are also doubling as three little monsters. I don't quite know what to do.

I had a nosey at your list and sense a desire for a planted tank...you can have one with goldies! I have a 40 gallon tank which has many java ferns and anubias, and has survived and even flourished with many goldfish - I've never come across one that could damage them, and the plants thrive on the nitrogen compounds the goldies produce. I used to regularly get nitrate readings of zero after my plants got well established (I have a LOT of them!) and that was really reassuring when I was going away for any length of time :) Glass pebbles scattered about are also a good way to make a bare bottom more interesting, one of my fish used to push them into little rows...

I really can't. They eat 100% of the plants I put in, including anubias and Java ferns. They recently destroyed a huge pond lily I put in my tank in a matter of one week.
