I still think a UG filter is OK for gold fish, especially if you have plenty of plants. I also agree that to fully clean you need to take the tank apart, but cleaning with a gravel cleaner syphon thingy is good enough.
Gold fish are tough. My gold fish are over 12 years old and have gone through everything, including a frozen pond, weeks in a bucket, a neglected tank, over feeding, under feeding, neighbours cats, a great dane in the pond, a night on the kitchen floor (it jumped out of the bucket). In fact I think they do better in a dirty tank, its more like a pond.
They are much easier to keep than say sea horses
