Hey, cool, some college roomate AA members. Welcome! We will be happy to help you w/ that 29 gal
. Better not let your friends get too jealous though, or they'll be like a lot of my college freinds and start getting tanks of their own.
To this day I still have a Texas Cichlid, and tank, and everything else in that tank, I got from a frat bro who didn't want it anymore b/c he didn't feel like moving it. It's the pic in my avatar.
Anyway, welcome Paty and karegg! AA is really great b/c it allows you to try new things or get help when you need it. It's like a nice cushy blanket of confidence that allows you to know that no matter what happens, you'll be able to find out the best way to go about handling it.
