stocking my 29
hey everyone im setting up this 29 g tank and im having trouble with a stocking scheme i got hard well water kh17.9 gh 125 ph 7.6 what should i do
What exactly are you asking? Stocking suggestions or water parameter suggestions? Have you read the free eBook from the menu on your left? Please don't just try to start up a tank without research first. Try out a fishless cycle!
8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.
yea Im kinda new but if I could go back and do it over I would go fishless....less money to start and your not worried bout sending fishy to their grave every hour of the day!...u have got some weird water tho!
He knows about the cycle, and he has access to seeded media from either of my 4 filters, he's just looking for suggestions on stocking it.
Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.
well i mean zebra danios are a pretty hardy fish thats for sure....uhhh i dunno i would think honestly prlly start with them and see how they deal with everything then look for something else cooler! thts really all i got hope it helps a lil.
yea i got the physics down i was just seeing if anyone could give me an idea on a cool tank or some cool fish i never heard or someing but thanks
Check out this site about dwarf cichlids: http://www.dwarfcichlid.com/index.php. There's a lot of different colorful choices. You could have a couple as center pieces and a small group of schoolers. I have a cockatoo, blue ram and a bolivian ram in my 29 gallon with some neon tetras. Lots of color and pretty active fish.
Just make sure your water parameters are good for the different kinds of fish. Although the blue rams usually prefer softer water ours is a little on the hard side but I've read the farm raised rams are a little more adaptable to those kind of water conditions.
125 gallon Discus tank
55 gallon Discus tank
55 gallon EBJD tank
I've been thinking about a tank Stocked with:
Black and Red Phantom Tetras and Pygmy Corydoras
20G: 8 Serpae, 5 Grn Cory. Planted,Tannin stained
29G: 12 Neon, 6 Gold Pristella, 8 Blk Phantom, 5 Pepper Cory. Planted, Tannin stained
5G: 1 Betta. Planted
10G Quarantine tank:
I have hard water with a ph of 7.6. I've never had a problem keeping any type of fish other than dwarf gourami's.
Personally, I would go with the tetra's. Cichlids are pretty awesome but they have a way of breeding constantly and you don't have a lot of space there for a ton of babies.
Look at dwarf tangs and shelldwellers or kribs. They will love your water.
