That photo was a different manufacturer, but they look the same. Here's the Elite though, below. You will need an air pump and air line tubing, that's all plus this unit.

Thanks for your compliments. Check out my other tanks, some are "former", under "Aquariums" below my name on the left. All are set up the same, that very simple, natural approach.

Byron.

Is there any particular size I need to get, both on the filter and the air pump for a 29 gallon tank?

It comes in one size, I have one in my 20g and one in my 29g.

If you have the money, an enriched substrate couldn't hurt...

By no means should you think it's a requirement though. (just my two cents.)

I'd definately go with the flame tetra since they're a bit smaller. When you plant the tank, I'd add 6 tetras, wait two weeks, add 6 more, wait, then the cories, wait, then the rams...

That's the trouble with these long threads, we forget what came at the beginning.

Donna mentioned Eco-Complete, and I recommended Flourite instead because it is less sharp and with corys (also mentioned) that's better.

Neither pecto or petsmart carry them. You may have to seach for a specialized fish store or order online.

That's not too bad! I'll definitely be looking into it. A question about power filters. I was looking at an AquaClear with the variable flow control. If I was to use a very small one with the flow turned down and no activated charcoal, would that be a possible alternative?
