Hello

Hi, my name is Richard and I am new to having fish. I have recently set up a 29 gal freshwater tank. Any advise or help is greatly appreciated. Thanks and I look forwarding to getting to know everyone.

Hello and welcome!

Is the tank cycled?

I am new to fish keeping myself, but I am learning things over time!

Hi, thanks for the welcome! I am sure it has not cycled through yet. My tank has only be up and running for one week now. However my levels are looking good and it seems to be going pretty good. What type of fish do you have in your tank?

Hello

You're welcome!

Ours took about 20 days to cycle.

We have one female betta who is very cute and 6 Pygmy Cory catfish in our 10g tank. The catfish are so cute! So small though. And we have black sand so they're hard to see when on the sand. We didn't really think that through when getting the sand lol.

We had 7 catfish but we found one had passed away in the tank last night. May have been there a day or two

They are! We wanted bigger ones but pygmys are all that should really be in a 10g. They're so cute... Their little faces just make me go awwwwwww.

Yes sorry the fish keeping! My wife was hesitant and now we are both anxious to set up a saltwater tank also!

It's ok!

Hubby had the idea to get fish.. And here we are! Hehe.

Oo saltwater would be fun! We want to try it someday. Not anytime soon though. Our 10g is enough for us for now
