Description: I have a 29 gallon fresh water fish tank with two Marble Hatchet fish,Two Pearl Gourami & Four Black Tetra.I have a 30-60 gallon whisper power filter with biofoame & A allglass 100w heater.
Advice: When starting a new aquarium, remember to do 50 percent water changes every week for the first 4-8 weeks (depending on tank size). This will get you safely through the nitrogen cycle without killing your fish. Only add a few hardy fish for the first 4-8 weeks then get your water tested then you can add your fish slowly. The key to a healthy fish tank is weekly water changes of 30 percent and monthly gravel cleaning with sifone and not overcrowding your tank. I have found that when keeping tropical fish it is best to keep the temperature at 82 degrees. This helps prevent the fish from getting ick. Also, add freshwater aquarium salt and provide plenty of aeration.My marbel angle fish out grew my 29 G so they went back to the pet store where i got them. the guy said angels perfer about a 55G tank.So keep this in mind when buying an anglefish, they also become very aggresive when they git biger but after all they are Cichlids.
Fish Kept: Two Pearl Gourami,Two Marbled Hatchet ,Four Black Tetra
Corals/Plants: I have plastic plants and one amazon sword which looks very realistic. Also, I have one plastic root.
Tank Size: 29 gallons

About Yourself: I've got my first 10 gallon fish tank when I was in 5th grade. And, i've been hooked ever since. I gave away my fish tanks but alway have gotten another one. My living space doesn't feel complete without one.
