I just wanted to share with the folks on this forum the setup my wife and I just bought, and ask for suggestions or comments. Other than not being able to find an All-Glass retailer without INSANE markup, I think I got decent stuff. Tell me what you think.
Here is what I went with...
30 Gallon Tank
All-Glass Flourescent Hood
Hagen AquaClear 50
Perfect-a-Flo Undergravel Filter
-Hagen PowerHead 30
I have a 24" strip bubbler lining the back wall of the tank and an airstone up front under the gravel... I went with an over-sized box filter for my size tank on this forums advice and figured I'd try out an undergravel filter as well. My PowerHead seems to really stir up small bubbles into the water and one side of the tanks current is pretty rough, I hope the fish will appreciate it. I have a very nice decoration they can hide in for stiller* water.
I got an API Master Test Kit and I'd just like some advice on how to prepare my tank for new fishys. It's been cycling untouched for about 2 weeks now. Tell me what you think and I would appreciate advice from a pro or two... I want to make a stable environment for my wifes fish, she really enjoys this stuff and I want them to be as healthy as possible.
