Thread: Megs 29g :)

  1. Smile Megs 29g :)


    0 Not allowed!
    hey, i have got a 29g freshwater that i am trying to cycle. In it there is a penguin 350b power filter, 1 airstone, a heater & thermometer. Also i had seeded the tank, with, established filter media, gravel, and some decorations from my established tank. Currently there are 2 platys, and 1 snail in the tank.

    So far we are on day 13 of the cycle, and there has been no spike in the ammonia levels.
    Currently the reading are:
    Ammonia: .25ppm
    Nitrite: .20ppm
    Nitrate: 10ppm
    ph: 8.5 (i know it is a little high)
    Water softness: very soft

    I am changing 10% of the water daily, and adding a water conditioner. the fish seem happy and healthy, there are no visible signs of stress, and they are very lively.

    I feed them every 2 days, about 3 flakes each, and they always come looking for more. Should i be feeding them more?

    Anyways, if i am doing anything wrong, or you have any suggestions, please comment. :)

    Just a question about the softness of your water.Do you know what the kh and gh are? In my area if you have low kh/gh water then the ph is normally under 7ph.

    gh is at about 10, and kh is at about 250

    ok, so today is day 14. all of the fish are NOT stressed, and i just did a 25% water change.

    Ammonia: .25ppm
    Nitrite: .20ppm
    Nitrate: 5ppm
    ph: 8

    levels are at about the same as they were yesterday, but the fish are eating, and swimming around still.

    it is day 15.

    Im thinking about adding 2 more fish on june 25, and then if i do do my total will be 5

    the levels are still doing great

    Ammonia: .25ppm (never seems to get any higher than this did a WC anyway)
    Nitrite: .20ppm
    Nitrate: 15ppm

    these seems like good levels, the fish are still active and eating.

    I would like to add 1 or 2 live plants. that require little to no additional care, and can live in gravel. i just wanted them to help take in some of the exess nutrience. Would this be a good idea?

    anyways, please tell me if there is something that i should change :)

    day 17

    alrighty! water is becoming slightly cloudy, but that is probably because i vac. the gravel yesterday. also there is green algae growing everywhere, is this bad??

    Ammonia:0.25ppm
    Nitrite:0.25ppm
    Nitrate:15ppm

    thinking about making a shale caves, center decoration thingy with tall green plants lining the back wall, with blue and purple plants in the next row, and then yellow/ orange and pink in the front row along with a few live plants attatched to the shale deco. what do you guys think of this plan, and what live plants do you think that i should use?

    hey, its day 18

    i just did a 35% WC, and the tank looks a bit clearer than it did yesterday, so that is good. i was thinking about adding 2 more fish tomorrrow, 2 more platys. is this a good idea??

    ammonia: 0.25ppm
    Nitrite: 0.20ppm
    Nitrate: 15ppm

    planning on calling a tile store tomorrow to see if they have any broken ones that i could use to make a decoration :)

    as always, the fish are happy, seem healthy and are active too.

    P.S. please give ur advise about adding fish tommorow. some people were saying that 2 fish anrt enough in a 29g to cycle it. Advise??

    I'm no expert, but I have a 75 gallon currently day like 28 for me and I've slowly been adding fish cause I too started with just 2 fish! I'm up to 14 fish now, but if you do add fish, make sure you get a VERY hardy fish and if trites or ammonia go over .25, big WC. I have 2 opaline gouramies and 6 danios and 6 corys and they're all doing pretty good so far, but I haven't let my stats get over .25 yet.
