Talking My new tank

As many of you know, I have been trying to get my tank cycled for about 2 months after getting some very poor advice from the LFS. Good news is that I am finally almost there! Attached is my 29 gallon tank.

I too like the variety of colors.

I got terrible advice from LFS and hadnt read enough to be smart about this. Have since remedied that. Basically, after 24 hours I stocked the tank with like 7 fish. Everything died, etc. But I am finally running well.

Fake plants. I am going to try to get this going first, then eventually begin moving to planted. I am not going to make the same mistake. Need to read up.

For pitt420dude, the stuff behind it hangs from the ceiling above and is plastic. Thanks for the concern though.
