  • 29G Planted Community

    I've seen so many great journals of other people's planted tanks and I though I would share mine.

    Tank Info:
    Standard 29G Tank (30x12x18)
    ZooMed T5HO 1x24W 5000K, 1x24W 6500K (I'm going to be changing this fixture to a Finnex Fugeray LED since I don't have the means to keep up with the CO2 need of this tank)
    AquaClear 70
    Eheim Jager 150W

    Stock:
    1 Rosy red minnow
    9 Glowlight tetras
    7 Rummynose tetras
    8 Trilineatus cories
    Hundreds of MTS
    1 Gold mystery snail
    1 Zebra nerite snail
    1 Olive nerite snail

    Plants:
    Rotala wallichii (soon to be taken out)
    Narrow chain sword
    Anubias congensis
    Apono boivianus (not doing so well)
    Crypt petchii
    Crypt wendtii red

    FTS (bit bubbly and cloudy after a WC)

    Chain sword has sent out a few runners. rummy in the background



    Nice red on a crypt

    That's quite the list for a 29G tank. Will be very interested in seeing pictures!

        not a bad looking home for them, personally I prefer the glo lite danios to the tetras, alot more color. (No not the Glo fish)

              Thanks everyone!

              Dena, I'll remember to pull them out a bit.

              I'm thinking about adding a few glowlight danios to my 10. We'll see.

                mine have really colored up and add a great zip of color to the tank (I say zip cause they never slow down to be a spot or splash haha)

                  Update 12/16/12

                  I've lost 1 cory due to an unknown cause. Other than that, the fish are thriving! I've finally gotten the other cories to start eating! I haven't added anything new. The plants are doing ok. A few dead leaves I need to trim but other than that, there's not much. The chain sword has put out more runners.

                  There will be big changes made to this tank around Christmas time. There will be a change in lighting and filtration. I'll be upgrading to a Finnex FugeRay and an Eheim 2213. I'll also be moving this tank over to a real stand.

                  Updated FTS

                    Amazing that it has only been a couple of weeks.

                          tank looks like its coming along well for you. I would give it some mild plant maint and let it be.

                              Sorry, I was sick the past few days. I'll get an update soon. I usually update on maintenance day. Haven't gotten around to doing any maint so, yeah. I got a new shipment of plants!
