    Today is a big day! I woke up to a Nitrite reading of 0 in my 29g, which is currently fishlessly cycling! It's been two weeks since my Nitrite reading was off the chart...I added a few drops of 1M Phosphorus Acid yesterday. I wonder if that contributed to the growth of my Nitrobactor army! Anyways, that's a story in the past now!

    Soooo...after deciding to take a day off work and doing a massive water changee, it's time to seriously think about what I am going to do to properly introduce my fish in the next two days! I currently have 3 Glowlight Tera, 3 Black Neon Tetra, and 3 Sunburst Platy waiting to go in the newly cycled 29g...

    First of all, I am going to make sure that my bacteria colony has stablized by adding my last dose of Ammonia and take a reading in five hours. If I get 0 readings for both Ammonia and Nitrite, I am off to my LFS!

    I will be getting 7 more Glowlight Tetra and 7 more Black Neon tetra to complete the Tetra school.

    Stocking plan for now:

    10 Glowlight Tetra
    10 Black Neon Tetra
    3 Platy


    Fish to add later:
    1 GBR
    1 BN Pleco
    Maybe a group of Cory?



    My tank set up:
    29g (30x12x18.5) glass tank
    AC50 HOB
    Tetra 50 Internal Filter x2
    Visi-Therm Stealth 200w
    Nova Extreme T5HO 2x24w


    Plants:
    Egeria Densa (Anacharis)
    Anubias
    Cryptocoryne Wendtii ''red"
    Crinum Thaianum (Water Onion Plant)
    Some cluster of unknown moss
    Some plastic ones

    Update on my planted 29g...

    More plants are added:
    Amazon swords (potted in Aquatic Planting Media with Jungle tabs)
    Unknown swords
    Hornwort
    Banana plant




    Also added fish a few days ago:
    10 Black Neon Tetra
    10 Glowlight Tetra
    3 Sunburst Platy



    3 Oto Cat
    2 GBRs






    Water parameter has been consistent. Ammonia and Nitrite stayed at 0, while Nitrate wanders at 20ppm. Daily 15% PWC has been done but Nitrate doesn't seem to be lowering!

    I was going to wait on getting my GBRs, but my LFS called me to let me know that they finally carried some! It's close to impossible to find GBRs around my town and I just could not pass by the change. My GBRs seem to have adapted quite well. The pair are going everywhere together, hunting down roaming blackworms!

    I potted my amazon swords today, because I just could not get them to stay in the sand. I hope I didn't shock them too much!

    Other plants have been growing consistently. My onion plants have come back to life! Crypt Wendtii did not have a melt down.

    I cannot wait for my plants to fill up my tank!
