My 29g tank log...

Figured I would post my progress so far, It is close to being ready for fish, maybe one more month, I still need a heater, plants (I am not keeping the fake ones in there) cycle needs to be done, and i need a new test kit and thermometer. I am also going to frame out my plexi top with wood to make it more stable and to make it easier to open and close.

Here is what I started with, bare tank, not lid or lights and poor seams (although it did hold water)


spray painted the back high gloss black, added play sand a plexi top and CFL bulfs in an incandescent fixture..


2 internal filters, one with no media to fix dead spot problems, the other has sponge (2 kinds) and ceramic media. water is finally clear after a number of water changes (i forgot how much i hate cleaning playsand!) Driftwood is soaking and the fake plants are just temporary so it does not look so bland. the slate and rock will probably stay in though.

The tank looks great so far! It reminds me of my tank when I first started it. Check out http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...journal-79280/ and you will see why. What are your plans as far as stocking?

Still not sure on the stocking... I may just go on a whim and pick what catches my eye when I eventually get to denver to find fish LOL I am tossing up the idea of some smaller cichlids now, I cannot make up my mind!

plants are going to be java fern, wisteria, and narrow leaf temple, and either baby tears or micro sword, can't decide what i like better for ground cover..
