My 29G just tested ZERO for nitrites!! I am sooo happy! It took 10 days to cycle this thing. Tomorrow I will get paid and I can get some fishies! I will spend all day tomorrow wondering what the heck I will bring home from the LFS.

I am so overjoyed! Here it is!

Cool:) 10 days is pretty quick for a cycle.

I'd also get a background for the tank if I were you, it makes it look better and also makes the fish feel safe:)

The batteries were from me funbling with that darn digital camera to no avail. I ended up using my phone for the pic. Also disregard the smirnoff bottle caps :D

I am hoping to transfer my 10G community to the 29G and make the schools larger. Something like this:

5 Cories
1 Platy / 1 Mollie
6 Zebra Danios
6 Neon Tetra
1 Dwarf Gourami

I would like something that will eat the algae too...I also want an angelfish but I am afraid it just would be pushing it to put one of those in there...I have an AC 50 so I don't want to stock to heavy...

That leaves me with an empty 10G which I can hopefully have two dwarf puffers or a hospital...
