I'm looking at your substrate and notice the size of the gravel. Is there something underneath or did you just go with the gravel?
I had lionhead goldfish befor this tank, had 100 lbs of gravel, could not throw it away. looked around and found a producd by API (Aquarium Pharmaceuticals) it's call First Layer Pure Laterite 20$ a box, you mix it with your gravel. One box per 55 gallons, I used 2 boxes in my 75 gallon...SO much cheaper than any other product on the market I could find....and you can see..it works great...this tank is 4 years old....
