wow, i didn't realize this pics would end up so large on here! I'm sorry about that, just trying to give you guys an idea of basicly what i'm working with...i'd love to do sparse plantings, maybe swords, between the spongebob 'houses' and next to and behind the 'crusty crab'

I'm still considering MTS and duckweed, i figure the worst thing that happens is i spend $20 and my goldfish get a great meal, best thing, for only $10 i can be a little less cautious with overfeeding and maybe cut my vacuuming/water changes to 50% once a week instead of twice

Duckweed and MTS sound like a good idea. Your tank doesn't appear to have too much surface movement, so the duckweed should take hold. Once it does you will want the goldies to nibble on it once in a while.

Another suggestion for planting would be to only have things across the back wall. Kind of like a living background of kelp fields. ^-^

It takes an almost exact level of water height to keep the TopFin30 and AquaClear 110 from turning into waterfalls and screwing everything up, i also think the prefilters help with slowing down the flow just enough

The Planting across the back would be nice!

I just wanted to add I love duckweed the little roots that hand down from it give it a really nice look.
