Just a quick update on the current aquarium goal. I’m pretty set on this three foot package deal. The tank is 36″ long, 15″ wide and 18″ high. It’s 42 gallons. The package deal comes with a solid pine stand, a Superwin AHJ752 (internal) or Resun HF2002 (hang on) filter, a submersible heater (100 watts) and a 3 foot single dalbarb flourescant light and housing (30 watts, I will have to get another one). I will be getting a sloping pine hood, but it’s not included in the deal. I am hoping to get it around the 31st of October, the end of this month. As far as stocking goes, I have about 30 male guppies going in there. The female guppies will stay in the 18g. There are fewer females than males. I am also hoping to get a few different varieties of Australian rainbowfish. As with my other tanks, it will be fully planted, eventually. Once I get it, I plan to run the filter in the 18g for a few weeks, rather than cycling the tank. While this is going on, I will set up the tank with the live plants. I am considering sand, but i’m a little worried about vacuuming it all up each week. I may be going to the creek this week with the waterproof camer. If I do end up going, maybe I can get some good underwater snaps.
