State: North Carolina
Country: United States
Description: This is my 29 gallon hobby tank. It is a Perfecto standard 29 gallon, 30" long x 12" deep x 17.5" tall. Techinal stuff------ Filtration: Magnum 350 canister (typically for a 55 gallon tank). Sun-Glo Flourscent light. 60 gallon whisper air pump with 2 air stones blowing up into the Magnum's bio-wheel for added oxygenation. Gravel: 25 lbs of Flourite crush slate + 4 cups of crushed coral 200 watt heater
Advice: This tank may sound overcrowded, but the crush coral and flourite help to maintain a Ph range of 6.8 - 7.2, the magnum 350 is more than sufficient to filter the small tank twice over each hour. My advice is to always have a setup where your filtration is twice your tank size (if possible), it just helps to keep the toxins and waste under control. Of course KNOW your fish and their habitat and needs.
Fish Kept: Fish------ 1 Neon Tetra. 3 Von Rio Orange Tetras. 3 German Blue Rams (1 male 2 female). 1 Gold Ram (female). 2 baby Leaf fish. 1 painted skirt tetra (i know-- bad me, but he was being picked on at the pet store, so i saved him from being beaten to death). 1 palateus cory. 1 skunk cory. 2 african ropefish. 2 striped raphael catfish. 1 lace catfish. 1 tatia bumblebee catfish. 1 Farlowella and a constant supply of 2 dozen feeder shrimp for the ropefish
Corals/Plants: De'cor----- mostly artifical, with 2 live amazone sword plants, 1 piece of live drift wood
Tank Size: 29 gallons
