Hi fellow fish nuts!
I'm returning to aquariums after a 4+ decades hiatus. I am now retired and I needed something to do and be. So I chose tropical tropical fish.
I started with a 29G tank for space and financial reasons - I'm in a 500 to 600 sq. ft. one bedroom apt having downsized from a a 1600 sq. ft. house. I have 2 HOB filters (penguin 200 & Aquaclear 50), crypts, anubias, Java fern, vals, swords (assorted),gravel, heaters, recently replaced Aqueon hood with glass canopy and Dual T5HO fixture.
I'm experimenting with foods,etc. and enjoying every bit of it.
Thanks for listening.
Yea! More crazy people! Maybe people wont notice how lolo I am if there's more of us huh? ;-)
It sounds like you hit the ground running. Any idea what you will stock it with?

Hello and welcome to the forum :wave:
I can't think of a better retirement hobby :)
hello and welcome. :-D
i'm not crazy it's all you lot :squint: :demented:
Welcome back - I had a similar gap in tropcial fish keeping, and you'll be surprised how much more is known now about water conditions etc. and the ability to monitor and adjust. What I've found is you can go as deep as you want iin understanding the chemistry and biology of the tank. Much less guess work now on how to respond to fish that are not thriving. Have fun!
Welcome to the site and back to the hobby ! It really is a wonderful way to spend your creative and animal loving energy. Have fun and good luck.
