I may have made a big mistake

A 29 gallon mistake. I was at Goodwill and they had a huge tank for $20 and I let my sister talk me into it. They also had an entertainment center that looked like it would fit my other 3 tanks perfectly together that was cheap, but super sturdy.

So now I have a Fish Entertainment Center. My cat already enjoyed it for a bit.



The 3g has my white/black betta, the 10g is my red/blue betta and his friends who will eventually be moving up to the 29g I think. the .75g is just for growing some plants up for moving them to the main tanks. I just got the big one set up today and moved some plants and mini snails in to try to grow them up while I figure out what I want to do. All I do know is I want to plant it up into a jungle! I had a heater already and bought a filter on sale for like $17 so I'm trying to do this all as cheaply as possible, but Ill probably spend a fortune on some driftwood.

I would like some recommendations of tall plants and any advice for a thick 'jungle' tank.

Jungle val is a beast, that is probably the tallest plant.

You might enjoy looking at this site. Go to the "Aquarium" drop down and you can look at plants from A-Z.

Saturday night is AquaBid's SNE with lots of good sales (it's the 3rd Saturday of the month). NoFishToday (www.bamaplants.com) has nice plants at more than reasonable prices. Sale is from around 7-11 EDT. Go to left side of page and click on "One Hour Auctions."

Amazon swords get huge. I have one in my 54 gallon that started out as a little 4 inch sproutlet about 6 months ago, and now it's growing out of the tank. And the tank is 25 inches deep.

It's-a me, myrio!

Also, that's the best kind of mistake.

I can send you a poop-ton of Myrio Mattogrensense for $25 free shipping if you like haha

Came from my own 29 that looked like this before the trim:


And I went to this. So you'd be getting all that Myrio that I cut out! They're long stems too, not dinky little ones! They do require at least medium light, they'll be okay in low light conditions but better in medium-high light. (Hey look! I have Giant Hairgrass I can finally see! hahah)
