58 fish!? That seems like a lot in a 29g (I am also new to the hobby).

THanks for sharing!
First tip I can give when planting a 29 gallon, is to get the best light fixture you can for the kind of plants you want to keep. Next is dose on a strict schedule all your supplements. So you can maximize growth. They have apps on smartphones for aquariums so that keeping track is easy. As for my stocking, I use a lot of biological filtration and do water changes twice a week. The eheim canister and modified aquaclear insure all my water values are the best they can be. I test prior to every water change as well. I have had to take out some fish because they were being too competitive for food and it was becoming difficult to feed all the fishes. So my stocking does change on occasion if I run into such issues. Majority of fishes in the tank are small. The plant density also aid in filtering the water.

Beautiful tank!!!

You mentioned that your lighting fixture is the Current USA Satellite Freshwater LED+ Fixture. Is it the 24"-36" size?

I have a 30" Finnex Fugeray on my 29g tank and always seem to be fighting bba and green spot algae.

It seems that your lighting has provided your tank with the perfect amount of light without need for pressurized co2.

Your doing a great job!!! Keep up the good work.

Also, what color setting are you using? Is it one of the preset colors?

Yes the size Is 24-36 light fixture. As For color setting I use the yellow button. Which is full spectrum I believe. Algae is a slight issue, but constant water changes help. I will try to post some updated pictures soon.

amazing. I love what can be done w/ undemanding plants like these. I know a lot of folks may put down low light, common "beginner", plants like java fern, but it really is attractive here.

I'm planning a riparium and wanted to go with something easier to maintain submerged and thick I'll be borrowing from you and sticking to java fern and anubias.

just fantastic

Well i have removed a few fish which were being too competitive with food and digging up the petites very frequently.

Its been a long time since an update. But i have broken down the tank completely and left a few fish in it with some java ferns that were broken down into smaller pieces. Here is a picture so you get an idea.

Well i was bored today and decided to move some of the anubias petite that i orginally trimmed down from the breakdown back in. It amazed me that what i put in was only about 50% of original amount. Here are some pictures of it all set and done.

Someday I'm going to do a tank like this but on a 7g cube scale! Hoping this fall once its cooled down for shipping.
Btw you should show off how long those anubias roots are, that you can plant them without weights

Well with the automatic timer you buy seperately from current it works out great. For low tech plants it has wonderful results. I know forum users who use 2 units on a tank for higher demanding plants.
