Welcome to my aquarium journal. I thought this might be a good way to keep track of the trials and tribulations and of course, the joys of my latest fish-keeping endeavor.
My aquarium is really not mine, it is a pet that my 6 year old son earned for consistent good behavior. My 8 year old is working on earning a pet cockatiel, so I may share some thoughts on that too from time to time.
We have a 29 gallon set up that I got free from a friend. We officially started the process on January 13, 2014.
Here are the specs:
gravel and laterite
Aquaclear 50 hang on back filter
Aqueon Pro 150 heater
20W GE plant and aquarium bulb
After much encouraging research here and on other forums I decided to add live plants. This is what we started with:
Java Fern and bronze wendtii cryptocoryne - given to me by my friend
The others we bought at PetSmart
Microsorium pteropus – Windelov Java fern
