New Tank

What size tank? Heater? Hood/light wattage & type? Are you cycling the water? Good luck, members here give good advice!

It's a 29 Gallon tank, i do not have the correct lighting right now because i use a Repto-light, i'm interested in a "canopy" type lighting fixture that costs about $90, any other suggestions?

the heater i have is sufficient in keeping the temperature constant at around 81 degrees.

um... just went through my first cycle. Nitrate-0, nitrite-0 ammonia -0, pH 8.0

got 5 new fish,
1 german Ram
1 Clown Loach
and 3 little guys that are schooling fish.
