29 gallon community

This tank was established in June of 2000 and has been a very successful tank for me. It is a heavily planted tank, and crowded on purpose. It is filtered by a Marine Land 350 pro canister filter, and a Tetra Whisper 60 HOB. I always like to over filter my tanks. Especially when they are crowded.

What are the dimensions of your 29g? I am trying to get my head around the differences between UK and US gallons. I think that UK gallons are a bit bigger, so a 18 g US tank is a 15g UK tank. But I may be off a bit with my calcs.

The Beloved Mr S has pointed out that my birthday is approaching, and that Tagawa’s tank isn’t really big enough... (never has been, but suddenly he agrees?)

I have spotted a couple that would fit that side of the chimney breast, cabinet and all, and one of them happens to be a 30g(UKg). 81x55x31cm, with an 88cm wide oak cabinet.

Mr S seems to be labouring under the hopeful delusion that by getting a new, bigger Tagawa tank, the old 15g will retire. No need to destroy his hopes quite yet, though. Will wait til the new tank is up and running and then just quietly continue running it. At the end of the kitchen, beside the French windows.

Tagawa’s tank: 70litre mature setup; betta, purple rasboras, 2 nerites, amano and wood shrimp. Heavily planted.
Valentine’s tank: 22litre cube; betta, 2 amano. Heavily planted.

Spot on. My 18x12x12 tank is UK 42l/9.3g or 11.2 US gallons.

New tank sounds perfect. Good luck with the tank in stealth mode

My 29 measures 30"x 12"x 18" I have never gotten use to UK gallons my self. At my age it's to late to teach an Old Dog new tricks LOL ( no pun intended) However I love the larceny at foot. Let me know if it works I'll try it on my wife. LOL. Never, never, ever give up a tank, but that's just my opinion. Good luck. Sounds like Mr. S is finding out a way to get Mrs. S to Ok something he wants also. Just love larceny. LOL
