29 Gallon Planted Tank (New to hobby!)

Hi all!

I started getting into fishkeeping and planted tanks about a year ago. I'm still figuring it out but here is my 29 gallon tank I set up in the summer. It's taken me a while to sort it out and get it balanced but I think it's now nice enough to share! And it's pretty much algae free (I must've done something right)!

PS I am certainly no aqua-scaper. I'm sure to some it will look like a hot mess but I'm just glad I have plants that growing!

Looks nice. What kind of lights are you using? I'm getting two 29g tanks setup myself.

2 13 watt 6500K CFL's with clip-on desk lamps. I did have 26 watts before but I had lots of algae. Now that it's settled down I may try them again, but I'm still seeing growth so I doubt I'll need higher lighting

I would have put the heater and filter behind the tall plants in the right corner and also added a thick black sheet of paper behind the rear glass.

Great effort !!!

If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
