Description: This is a 29 gallon with Flouresent Hood , 100 watt heater , Marine land emperor filter , 1 small air stone. It has 30# black flourite , 30# sand from Lowes , Gravel that came with tank ( which was $40 for all hood , tank , heater , filter , gravel off a yard sale site ) , Driftwood and Rocks from here in Arkansas lake Norfolk and back yard.
Advice: Buy what you can at garage sales , Market place sites and Ebay or Amazon. Spend you $ on substrate , filter media ( I use triple layer filter material from amazon and a finishing fine layer from Amazon in my filters with carbon in a cartridge don't buy pre made cartridges ) , and plants. Read about fish before you buy them.
About Yourself: Retired Mom and Grandma. Love my tanks learn something new every day Can watch them for hours. Moved to Arkansas from Illinois. Love outdoors but can no longer do what I used too so I'm bringing it indoors to me. I have several Tanks...goldfish....blue crayfish...shrimp and bettas...community...working on a 46 bow front now keeps me busy while my husband works in the yard haha. Use to own a Pet Shop 40 years ago but so much has changed and I've been out of it so long I'm back to being a novice.
