While he may have some of his facts straight, he says "Small goldfish and paradise fish are the best inhabitants available for mini-tanks. One goldfish per gallon is the maximum crowding we recommend."
I'm sorry, but that is the worst possible thing for a goldfish. Goldfish get huge and keeping them in a tank like that is cruel. They are too messy and large for something like that. I know he says you'll need to switch out fish, but keeping a goldfish in conditions like that for any amount of time is going to cause problems.
I've seen a bookshelf aquarium
at petco that could be neat. It's about 7 gal, which is more than most nano tanks. You could do black gravel, black background, plant it heavily and add some red cherry shrimp. I've seen some tanks with black sand, red cherry shrimp, and lotsa plants that look really nice.
