Yo I work with fish for a living, three reef tanks and over 10 years experience with fish in general,... the amonia that is excreted from the gills and urates is bad for the plants with out certain bacterial cultures (nitrasomma and nitrasomoan(sp?)) to turn that into nitrate, nitrate is great so is the phosphate an established aquarium normall produces.

Tho this may pose a problem a bigger threat in my honest opinion is that plant matter is a staple diet to guppies and goldfish alike, make sure those roots never hit that water or they are just gonna gobble them up undoubtable causing stress.

The theory as long as u feed the fish is not true either, they lack the genetic composition to feel satiation, your best hope is to take all those pesky goldfish out they will deffinetly cause problems, the guppies could stay although they too like to eat plant matter, I'd try this with something like Cardinal Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, or Zebra Danios, although they will still eat plant matter if starving these fish are less prone to eating plants in general if other more nourishing food is present.

I would not suggest using that clear container. The light exposure could cause problems to your root system. Clever idea with the fish but I think duece bigalow is right about them causing problems. Good luck...

I agree with several others that you would prolly better off using the fishtank as a reservoir and running hoses to a bubblebucket. But this is great bro. +rep for giving me the best laugh I've had in a while. Project nemo. I fuckin love it dude!
