Dear Prasenjit I have few point to say your aquarium can contain aprox 180lit of water why water is less and more importantly tank is overcrowded in long run stop the flow of your filter

It seems for now the things r quite good. However sometimes its the fish and not the aquarium. Also i would suggest you not to use carbon/. Keep it as simple as poaaible and thats ceramic ring and sponges. Also get the blue scrub pads...they do the filtering at finer level which is imp fr mechanical filtration.

Never noticed....why asking....is it for the carbon?

Also what should be set up at the top of the tank....I have 4 liners at the top of the tank...I kept the air pump and Top filter at the top left keeping diagonally....just as we write "A/C Payee in a check"....:)...I have the tube attached at the top with the plastic holders....sometimes when I open the cover, the top filter falls off within the tank....Are there any special arrangements for the tube or the filter I need to buy...

Not carbon. Smtyms powerheads leak sml voltage into the water nd due to this fishes might nt feel cmfrtable.

Top filter falls in the tank!!!! U kidding?? Dats d last thing anyone would like to evn think of. It releases debris into the water and all toxic materials too. Now u understand why ur fish dying??

I mean to say stop the under water flow from the power head bcoz gold fish r slow moving fish and you have bubble eyes they are not comfortable with water current and do some arrangement so that your top filter not falls into the tank anymore
