30 Gallon Freshwater Tank

Well this will be my 30 Gallon goldfish tank, gonna giver about another week for everything to settle before I put some of the fish in...

Lemme know what you think, once again I stayed away from "live" plants and wood just because I don't really have the time to take care of the tank all the time.

Hope you all enjoy!

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I do have one question, this happens to my everytime I put 100% new water into a tank and let it sit a week before I put any fish in.

The water turns foggy after two days of it being crystal clear....except its been about 6 days and the foggy water isnt gone in my 30 G yet...any advice...

sounds like a bacterial bloom to me,
it should however clear it's self,i'm not sure if running activated carbon would help.

You don't have to do this, but I would reccomend doing a fishless cycle, or putting in only 2-3 fish every few weeks cuz 9 goldies strait away will be alot to handle, but if you add them in add seperate times it should work a little better, but cycleing the tank before fish is prly the best solution

Well today had some unfortunate events, I had a final today at university but I couldn't do anything about it today, but I was going to put 3 fish in today to get the cycle process going, however I noticed my dresser was all wet, to my surprise the tank is leaking!! Well I bought this tank used off of kijiji, go figures something happens...

So tomorrow I will be spending my day removing all of the water, plants, ornaments and gravel, to attempt to silicon the glass together properly.

Anyone have any better ideas?

Blahhhhh
