I just got a 29gallon tank from my girlfriend for Christmas. I've been reading a lot since I found I was getting it. I am currently cycling it with 6 Tiger Barbs. Hopefully they make it. Very funny fish. I am not sure what I plan to do afterwards I figured Tiger Barbs would be a good entry way to either a community or cichlid tank when I decide which way I'd like to go.

Thanks Fran! On the water changes..how often and how much? They guy at the LFS didn't seem to mention any, I know I should do 10-20% weekly when its all good and running. but what about right now during cycling? I don't remember reading anything special there. ALSO. how often to feed? I put in a tiny bit last night after they were in the tank for maybe 5hours...it was as though the food didn't even exist. The pH is at 7.0 and the temp is about 70-75 right now.

Thanks again!

Hi,
I suggest you do a 20-25 % water change every other day. Don
