Finally got my 55 gallon set up.

I am so excited! I finally got my 55 gallon tank set up. My gold fish are very happy to be in the 55 gallon instead of the 10 gallon we had. I ended up doing a fish in cycle with some new gold fish. Now I have a new problem all the new gold fish I got survived the cycling process. So now I have eight gold fish in there. At least the new ones are itty bitty, not even an inch long yet. They seem a little stressed with the addition of the huge gold fish but the bigger ones seem to be leaving the little ones alone; I think the little ones are just being cautious, but I see them getting closer to each other so maybe in a couple of days they will be fine together. My pleco is the happiest with the move, I've never seen him so active. I got him a nice decoration with lots of hiding places, but he seems to be happy exploring right now.

Nice setup. I like the colors. In the pic, it looks like the the two big Goldfish are kissing.

Looks good. I like the gnarly center piece, it that ceramic?
Goldfish and pleco's are really messy (lots of fish waste) and I could be wrong but it looks like you have a small internal filter? You might want to be thinking about/planning a filter upgrade?

Unfortunately it is ceramic, I've been working on getting a piece of driftwood ready for a while now, it still discolors the water so I can't put it in yet. I have a penguin bio wheel power filter 350 in there right now. On the specks it says its rated for up to 75 gallons.

Ah...I looked again and said to myself 'what were you seeing'. (I'll give myself a stern talking to :-))
