My 29G Tank
 
Some pics of my new tank. Been up for about 3 weeks, has 10 danios and 2 Siamese algae eaters in the tank for cycling. 29G with 65W CFL with Coralife 6700K lamp.

Beautiful looking tank ttiger :D

Looking good.... :)

I like that plant in the right front, and have had it in my tank. It was one of the few plants I couldn't get to grow, and it died on me.

Edit:
It is supposed to be green on top and purple / red on the underside. it is called "Telenthera" or "Red Temple plant"
Scientific name (Alternathera reinekii v. "Rosaefolia")

Cycling right now, so just the Danios and SAEs. Planning on

2 Clown Killies
2 Dwarf Honey Gouramis
4-6 Praecox Rainbows
1 German Blue Ram
Maybe some shrimp if I can find some I like.

Lonewolf, these plants are only a few days old so I am hoping that they all stick around. I have 3 of those plants (Flame something or other), and really like them. Was a bit disappointed when I got the flames home, a lot of dead leaves around the bottom wrap around the stalks. If everything grows as well as I hope, it will look really nice in a couple of months.

Thanks for the nice comments. Wouldn't have gotten it this far if it weren't for this board!!

Most of your plants should do fine. It will fill in and look even better. I just question the Red Temple Plant, as I couldn't get it to grow. But then again, your water parameters are not the same, so they may work for you.

cool, danios cycled my tank and none of them died, even when my ammonia was at a toxic 1.0 and my nitrites were at 2.0 none died. Very hardy fish

When cycling a tank with fish, the ammonia and nitrite should be kept below 1ppm. This will not slow down the cycle, as any presence of ammonia or nitrite is in excess. If I did a fish cycle, I would always keep my levels below .5ppm.
