Hey, supaoopa, I have a 29 Gallon and have also been trying to learn planted tanks for about two months. I've decided that I really like the 29G size for a small tank. A 10 or 20 is just too small, but I like a tank I can lift myself and put in the back seat of my car, so the 29G is the perfect size for me. I also have a 30-Long, because I was told that length is better, so the fish have more distance to swim, therefore a 30 Long is better than a 29... but for planted tanks, height is definitely what I want. As far as the odd size of 30", glass covers are easy to find in that size (it's exactly the same as a 20 Long), but lighting hoods are tricky. Anyway, the tanks look great, and hopefully we can both progress in the hobby (BTW, I'm envious of your algae-free tanks...)
