Hey guys! My dad just bought me a 29 gallon! 😁
Since he made me get rid of the 40 gallon when we moved, he promised he’d buy me a new tank after we got settled, and here it is!
I’m super excited. I miss my little Ranchu so much, so I know I’m getting a Goldie or two, but I’m torn between Ranchu’s, or maybe pearlscales. I’m very highly considering one of each, which I know is a little tight on the stocking, but I over filter and it is a planted tank, so as long as I keep up on the water changes, I think it will be okay.
I added a bunch of cycled media and dosed 4ppm of ammonia, so in a few days when the ammonia goes back down to zero, it should be ready for fish. I’m also getting some fluval bio-booster tomorrow to make sure there is plenty of beneficial bacteria before I get fish.

Tank finally cycled and here are the new fish! Just got them yesterday, and boy the are cuuuute! The LFS didn’t have pearlscales or ranchus, but I ended up getting a little black moor and a blue Oranda. Pictures coming soon.

congrats on the new tank, i too acquired one much larger than my two smaller tanks and it is a thrill to see 3 pairs of angels and many goramis. its looking quite splendid, but as i said elsewhere my giant gorami bob is dying and so the thrill is tempered with sadness.

All that happens is the link url gets pasted on the post with a minisbule dot os a pic before it - but no great pic at all!! May be one does something while editing like press import image icon. Frustrating.
