29 Gallons, new to this for the second time!


Recommended Posts

I'm just starting my 29 after about 15 years and trying live plants too!! I love the floating moss ball 🙂 

Just set up the 29 today, hoping to snag some filter media and maybe some plants from my brother in law on Sunday to help it cycle and then get some fish in there soon 🙂 ! 

welcome back and your tank looks great!!!

Love watching fish get excited for their treats.

Just picked up a 29 recently also. Waiting on a few supplies to arrive for set up. Going to leak test today. Not gonna lie, I'm a little intimidated by the extra height. It took me a good four months on my first ever planted to get the lighting/planting/stocking balanced.

All the best!

Haven't updated anything about this tank in a while, after getting the 45 g set up.  Flame dwarf gourami is the centerpiece.  4 dannios, 5 tiger endlers, and 8 emerald eye rasboras are the dithers.  Got a gang of amano shrimp helping keep the place clean.  I had some albino aeneus corydoras, but moved them to the 45 to make room for some striata loaches!

Added 5 of those dudes and then really didn't see them much for a few days.  They mostly were hiding inside the castle decoration and only darting out in the dark.  Never saw them eating any of the food I put in, but I am pretty sure they have been sniping the ramshorn snails that live in there.

Added a cholla log to give them some extra cover in a place I could see them and decided to see if they'd come out for some frozen bloodworms, as I'd read they tend to like those.  That was a winner!  Here are a few of them out and about.  They were visible and swimming around all evening after that!  Very entertaining fish.  I was a little worried as some of the worms got jammed between the log and the glass, but the loaches used their narrow snouts to snaffle them all up eventually.
