How long did you keep the 29 gallon going for?

bbroush,

That one kept going for about a year total before I ended up moving. With the native plants being seasonal it went through a couple different phases. I only ended up taking pictures of it for the AGA contest though so that's all I've got.

Hi, I worked on this tank for a while then I just let the plants grow for a while. It is mostly anubias because the fish do not care to eat it. The fish have eaten most everything I have planted. It as seachem onyyx, and Carib Sea Rio Grand, as well as many rocks and pieces of mopani. The fish are assorted. The ones that are orange are "foster goldfish" who will be moving on soon.


I am going to get to work on moving things around some. That grass belongs in the back.

Planted goldfish tanks are doable as long as you find plants the fish won't eat. Looks like it's going to be a pretty tank. I've always wanted to do a planted goldie tank. Perhaps someday.

Here's my low tech 55 gallon. Eco-complete with root tabs and liquid CO2.

Getting a bit wild and needs a good trim. I'm thinking about ripping out some of the stem plants completely.
