  1. Cool Kalene's 10 & 29 Gallon Adventure!


    2 Not allowed!
    As I type this intro, I am shaking the crap out of the #2 Nitrate bottle hoping that I will have goods news today for my 29 gal. FYI my arm might fall off lol
    Anyways, Heelllooooo AC family . I've been in the AC since December 2014 & this is my first ever journal. I hope everyone enjoys and becomes apart of this "adventure' I have taken on. So for those who don't know my aquarium background, I have 2 home aquariums. The first one is a half moon 10 gallon, I started around the beginning of December I would like to say, originally I had started out with ONE male swordtail, Sosuke, ONE female Gold Doubloon Molly, Ponyo, & THREE Penguin Tetra, Rico Private & Skipper ( If you have ever seen Madagascar, they are named after 3 of the penguins). So for a newbie I didn't know any better, I just fill up the tank let it run for a week and then added fish. The fish night the Swordtail decided he didn't want to be in there so he jumped out, I found him in the morning. A sad lost indeed, he was beautiful. Long story short, I still have the Molly & 3 Penguin Tetras and my Molly gave birth to fry TWICE already. I sold about 20 of her first batch and kept about 5, her second batch she had around 11, I let nature take its course and now I have 5 left in a breeders box.
    The second tank is a 29 gallon. No fish just yet, I am doing a fishless cycle. Not a fan of WCs, and with a 29 gallon that's a lot of water to change!! I have a Zen "Buddha" theme and I plan on getting live plants from a recommended eBay "store" called, best aqua deals. Free shipping & it comes with 30 live plants with 9 different kinds of beginners plants just for $25.99! Can't beat it, I swear. Anyways, for my future stock of fish in my 29 gallon.... honestly I can't find a good "center piece" fish. I seriously want a female Betta but I get some may different opinions it makes my head spin. Besides the Betta, I was going to settle for Gourami's, smaller ones, and MOST DEFINTIELY a group of 6-8 cory cats, probably throw in a school of some tetras, haven't decided what kind. So yup, thanks for reading all this and like I said I hope people will be apart of this and follow my new journal. If anyone would like to share opinions, thoughts and advice or anything at all. PLEASE FEEL FREE!!!!! Thanks!

    I know... I never thread jack either... but perhaps this is a good place to start a conversation about thread jacking?

    Just kidding, but this may be the fastest thread jack ever ;-)

    Glad to see your journal! I Look forward to following along.
