 Bioload  has  to  do  with  filtration.  It  has  nothing  to  do  with  tank  size.
 
 That  said,  the  tank  is  on  the  small  side  for  six  6"  fish.

 To  grow  emersed  plants,  you  will  need  very  high  levels  of  light.  Unless  your  tank  is  outdoors  or  has  intensive  lighting  indoors,  it  probably  will  not  work  as  intended.

 I  dont  think  that  plants  can  take  all  the  nitrates  that  goldies  give  out.    When  we  are  talking  about  20  ppm  nitrate  requirement  for  plants,  goldies  have  the  capacity  to  put  far  more  than  whats  enough  for  plants.

 It's  unlikely  the  goldfish  will  let  any  plants  take  root  as  there  is  so  little  space  for  them  anyway.I  think  you  would  need  a  bigger  tank  for  such  big  goldfish.If  you  got  a  tank  ,planted  it  and  let  the  plants  take  root  before  adding  the  fish  the  plants  would  have  a  better  chance  of  surviving

 Hi,
 Congrats  for  your  new  tank.
 try  25%  w/c  on  a  weekly  basis.
 Measure  ammonia  with  test  kit,  yu  can  try  "Nesseler's  reagent"  for  this  test.  Costs  approx  Rs.  80/-  per  100  ml  and  you  require  just  few  drops  for  a  test.
 You  can  put  some  salt  to  neutrilise  ammonia.
 If  you  still  have  your  old  tank,  transfer  fishes  in  batches  so  that  ammonia  toxicity  is  less.
 I  recently  set  up  my  new  tank  using  "fishless  cycling".  This  is  a  planted  livebearer  tank.  It  cycled  in  10  days  instead  of  2  months.  I  did  not  have  a  single  casualty.  In  fact  my  mollies  are  breeding  like  hell  now.

 Sandeep,
     How  did  you  cycle  the  tank  without  fish?
