    Welcome Pritish, You have some nice fishy friends, the white and black one is that a Ryukin or Fantail?
    Is that a pangasius catfish you have in their with the goldies?

    Hi laidoka, the white and black you mean the colorful one right, they are fantail calicos, and yes they are pangasius catfish with goldies.

    I suppose you will have to move the catfish at a later date, your water is also crystal clear, how many water changes do you do per week?

    Yes in next 1-2 years i will have to move them to a new bigger tank, i do weekly 50-60% water change with well water and now i have removed that sobo internal power filter that u see in first 2 videos and replaced it with sunsun hw 302 canister filter and also removed the substrate to make my tank bare bottom and diy painted it black and blue will upload the new video soon.

    Yea I am also opting for a canister filter, although I do two water changes per week 30% % 70% I am still wondering if a canister is worth the cost.

    Yes canister filter are way too much efficient than internal power filter as the waste gets accumulated outside tank and they carry a lot more physical and bio media i opted for sunsun brand as its way too cheaper than other brands and works very efficiently and it cleans all the water in just 1 hour all the muck that my goldfish creates goes inside it and my water looks fresh.

    There is no such thing as a "too efficient" filter. Unless you mean't to say something else..

    He meant "way more efficient."
