My 29G Biocube

After a long absence from keeping fish (I think the last time I had a tank was back in the late 1980s when I was a kid) I got back into the hobby again in 2010. I got this Biocube from Petsmart for "free" (they rung it up but it didn't show up on the receipt and I had a ton of other stuff I was buying for it that made the bill around 200-300 bucks anyways). I made a couple stupid mistakes like trying to plant plants into straight gravel (LOL) along the way, but I'm most proud that this tank has been going strong for nearly a year and half without any major die offs in fish...I'm sure some of the Bee Gobies I got are at least as old as the tank is, which is a major accomplishment for me LOL.

Anyways, Specs on the Tank:

Tank: BioCube 29G

Filtration: built into tank with UV sterilizer and Sponge filter for extra measure

Heater: Fluval E100

Substrate: White Gravel from PetSmart

Flora: Moss Balls, Java Moss, duckweed

Fauna: 11 Bee Gobies, 2 (maybe 3...haven't been able to find the third one lately) Otto Cats,2 Amato Shrimp , a bunch of Red Cherry shrimp

Bee Gobies
