We've decided to set up our 29gal, because well waiting till after we move could be forever.. theres like nothing to rent around here that allows pets
So we decided if we do move, we'll just deal with moving it..
so we did the easy part, we set it up, filled it, played with the bubbles for awhile.. now the more complicated bit.
I know i need to cycle the tank, i had a bunch of websites saved that talked about how to do it using a piece of shrimp, anyone know how to do this?
Also someone on another site told me that because i'll only be putting 2 small goldfish in the 29gal tank that i shouldnt have to cycle it, is this true? They also said goldfish dont need a heater?
i know they like cooler temps, but should they have a heater just set lower?
Im pretty sure its just going to be a gold fish tank, since were gonna end up getting fish from walmart, there fish have been looking a bit healthier lately.. except for the last week, they had Ick, but they were actually treating it and not selling them, which i thought was surprising. is there anything else that can live happily with goldfish?
Ive never really had a tank of my own, i mean we had some when we were little, but my parents took care of them, so any extra info you all would like to pass on would be great.
