I only have one fifteen gallon with an Ameiurus Natalis-commonly known as a mudcat-as it's sole occupant. He's a very very active fellow that is (as of my last guessing of his length) about 3.5 inches. He gets a diet mainly comprised of worms (because he loves them and they are high in protein) and when I cannot find worms, pellets for bottom feeders. I do a 50% water change every 1-2 weeks. I have sand as my substrate of choice. As far as decoration goes, I have a mangrove-root type thing, a small rock cave, and several fake plants. I basically never changed anything asthetically about the tank, although it is in need of a makeover. I see this tank as a vast mine of untapped potential. But yeah, that's about it. Oh, and I have a ten-gallon and a twenty-nine gallon, both currently dormant in my attic. I have recently taken a very strong intrest in aquascaping, planted tanks, and nano tanks as well, so I hope to first use the ten-gallon as a tank for me to practice aquascaping, then remodel my fifteen gallon and transfer The Eliminator (oh, that's what my catfish is named, forgot to mention that) to the ten-gallon until the nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, and pH levels even out and it seems safe to transfer him back into the fifteen gallon. I think that's about it.

You are going to need a wayyyyy bigger tank for him. He can get up 18in. You should look into getting at least a 75g. You should set-up the 29g and get it cycling and move him there when its done cycling.

Alright, I'll set up the 29 gal. tomorrow, add gravel and the basics and start it up. I figured I'd need to bump up his aquarium size soon. There's nothing like starting a new aquarium to get you in the mood for aquascaping. However, I'll just let it go through at least the high-ammonia phase before putting any living thing in it (whether it's plants or animals).

What do you have for a filter for the 29?

03-09-2009, 12:46 AM
Yes, I'm currently using it for my fifteen gallon. Well, not any more. Amazon and I put the twenty-nine-gallon's filter back into the twenty-nine gallon and I recently transferred The Eliminator (my Black Bullhead Catfish, for anyone who didn't know) and he's staying very still, adjusting to the new water's pH and such. He looks so tiny in the new aquarium! I'm also going to start an auarium journal or whatever it's called on my 29 gal. I took pics as we started filling it up, halfway, three quarters, and when it was full. Since I used silt/sand from the Mississippi River, it's taking quite a while to settle, but from what I can see, the tank looks pretty good.
