Description: This is my 29 gallon hobby tank. It is a Perfecto standard 29 gallon, 30" long x 12" deep x 17.5" tall.
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.
