29 gallon journey/journal/build
 
Ok, since this seems to be the most popular thing to do when starting a new tank and looking for feedback, I'm gonna just kind of update, and post any questions, pics, or notes from time to time on my 29 gallon that I'm gonna be starting this summer. Right now this is my stocking plan. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

6 black skirt tetras
6 zebra danios
4 orange laser cories
1-2 Bolivian rams
1 keyhole cichlid
1 rubberlip or bristlenose pleco

It's gonna be a natural setup with Mopani driftwood, possibly some VERY lowlight plants, and a 55 gallon aqueon quietflow filter on it. Has anybody had success with the Bolivian pair combo?

Ok, just read jason's profile on the kribensis, and it managed to change my mind. New stocking Is as follows:
6 black skirt tetras
6 zebra danios
4 orange laser corys
1 male kribensis
1 keyhole cichlid
Anyone got any tips on the kribensis's care?

So happy! Just sold our house, so the new tank is goin in in more like a month! Time to start saving! (and packing!!!) also, changed my mind again, and went back to rams. Which one do you guys prefer?

Geez... Harsh crowd. Whatever. Shopping for a house now. Planning on getting an aquaclear filter, as they seem highly recommended.

This is going to be so cool. You should definitely do the plants! I can't wait to see how this turns out!

Thanks! I'm thinking some java moss, and some anubias nana at this point... But I still don't get the whole lighting situation.

Yeah. Also, the aquaclear is a good filter to use. I use an aquatech, but people don't usually recommend them.

Ya, I like that you can use a bunch of different cartridges. That hopefully will help with cycling, and general maintenance.
