    Things are moving along in my new 29 gallon freshwater aquarium! My plants came, and I spent all day planting. Planting underwater is EXHAUSTING.

    I think it looks good, but it will look better when things grow out, of course. Right now it seems that all plants are one of two sizes: short and medium sized. Wait til the Amazons and Val get going!!

    So, I ran out of crazy glue (for gluing rhizome plants to resin driftwood. Some of my rhizome plants are clinging to their tank mates, waiting to get attached.

    NOTE: I had one other aquarium years ago. It was a sweet 10 with plastic plants. Real plants are so much fun. This hobby has really changed since then. Lots more fish, plants, information, resources. Thank you, internet. FREE THE INTERNET.

    Water is still clearing from planting/water change.

    After excessive amounts of consideration, the fish I have selected for my 29 is Green Neon Tetras, Panda Corys and some shrimp. I will also consider some Otos and (the good kind of) snails. I'm getting very excited! Had to keep the excitement in check while being patient about the cycle. But I'm cycled now :cigar:.
