    Cool My Dual 29 gal Aquarium Journal


    1 Not allowed!
    I'm so excited to be starting another journal, although this setup will take me a few months to put together.

    Dual 29 gal Tetra aquariums, placed end-to-end - got these yesterday at the Petco $1 a gallon sale

    Tank 1 with 15 Amano Shrimp and 12 Peppered Cories
    Tank 2 with 2 BNPs and 12 Glowlight Danios. As the danios will be surface feeders, I shouldn't run into the problem I had with BN1 & BN2 in the 75 gal. No bottom feeder wafers needed and I'm sure the Danio's food will never reach the tank bottom!

    I will be adding the Glowlight Danios to the new 29 gal with the 2 BNPs, instead of the 75 gal. I want to add 1 more female and 2 male Neon Dwarf Rainbowfish and 4 more long-finned Zebra Danios to my 75 gal. I really miss the larger school of rainbows (I only have 3 girls left and they are doing great) and love my long-finned danios. I'm very happy with the 4 species in the 75 and am not going to add another species. All 4 species school together and are very comfortable with each other. I don't want to mess that up.

    DIY Wood stand - will use Cliff's idea of 2 stands with a common top. Will be easier for me to build and handle. This is the stand I'm going to build - it will be 2 units with a total length of 5 feet.

    I'm hoping to start on the stand this weekend.


    Each tank:

    Substrate will be Quikrete Commercial Grade Medium Sand
    Artificial decor, with manzanita driftwood in the BNP tank
    Filtration will be an AC70. Will add my AC30 to the Amano/Cory tank to keep it seeded.
    Aqueon ProHeat 200w heater
    Lighting - Beamswork does not make a 30 inch LED fixture, only a 24 or 36 (one too short, the other too long). Will have to find a different unit or have dark areas on each end with the 24 inch unit. Or buy a 24 and 36 inch and mount them to the canopy. Not sure yet.

    That's it so far. I have to wait till I get the AC70 and the heater for the first tank. Then I can add my seeded biomax and the glowlight danios and the 2 BNPs. Of course, these are not inexpensive fish, so it'll take me a while to refill my "new tank fund".

    Now I can start researching different aquascapes. I want to do something totally different than my 75 gal.

    This looks like a great project, thanks for sharing with us.

    If you don't mind me asking what problems did you run into with your old bnp? I remember something about bloat but that's it and would like to avoid possible problems.
    20 gallon tall: empty
    29 gallon: moderately planted with 9 bloodfin tetra, 1 german blue ram, 11 glow light tetra and 1 BNP

    they were eating foods they shouldn't, high protein foods that were not vegetarian. my Tetras like to eat only on the bottom of the tank so I was feeding them bottom dweller wafers. the BN's were eating them too, which were not good for them. that's how they got the bloat.

    Aqueon does make a 30 modular led unit. Have not tried it out yet (have some other bills to pay first). The fixture comes with one led tube and it has slots for two more. The led tubes come in daylight and colormax.

    Good luck on the setup!

    Thanks! I have to finish this one, build the second stand and the canopy, which will have 1 frame with 2 removable tops like my 75 gal. I didn't want a heavy cabinet look for the stands, so I have a unique idea for finishing the front and sides. I have decided to invest in Rena XP2s (M) and inline heaters for these 2 tanks and I need to make the stand cat-proof, but accessible thru the front. In my head my idea will work - hope it does in reality!

    Really awesome, I give you a lot of credit... I don't think my building skills are up to the challenge of doing stands!
