New Aquarium Owner
Hello all. I just purchased a 29 Gallon aquarium yesterday for my first ever aquarium. I wanted to get the 55 gallon but figured I'd get smaller for my first and then add to the collection. I def. didn't want a 10 gallon though, just to small.
Anyways I have it set up currently, been set up for about 24 hours now. Added everything the pet store told me to add (for the nitrogen cycle). I do not have any fish in it yet, I wanted to check here before I went and got any because I don't want to kill them all. The tank has a nice filter, very good aeration, a nice heater, and in-water thermometer. It's sitting at 76 currently. the water has cleared up a ton after adding everything to it yesterday.
I probably went overboard on the aeration... there a good amount to have or not have?
Anyways, I'm not 100% on the nitrogen cycle, everything I read is different. With fish, without, 2 days long, 2 months long, etc etc.
I'm really anxious to get some fish going, but I want to make sure everything is safe for them. In the 29 gallon I really plan on only have about 5-10 fish (of course depending on the size of them).
Anyways, any more information would be fantastic.
