Hello everyone! Last week I got my first ever big tank, a lovely 29 gallon long tank. I have some fishkeeping experience, mostly with bettas and smaller tanks. I’ve been researching equipment but I keep finding conflicting information, so I thought I’d ask and hear from others experience. I need to buy the full setup for this tank, a heater, filter, hood, light, and substrate. What wattage is best for this tank size? Most people say 100 watt is fine but some people say 150. Can anyone recommend reliable heater and filter brands? I also really need a good hood for this this tank, but it’s a homemade tank with unusual dimensions, so I can’t find a lid that’s the right size. Does anyone know of a good lid that I could order and cut to the correct size? I was planning on buying an AquaTech 20-40 HOB power filter, but does anyone’s know of something better I should be using? Any help is greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks!
