*shrug* it looks roughly the same size as my 30, I don't see what everyone's issue is.

These are dimensions for a 29 g. All-Glass lists theirs as 30 L x 18 H x 12.5 deep.

A friend of mine bought a bunch of those for his 60g recently. The orange stripes and dots look like someone took a marker to 'em. They're pretty cool.

-edit: Didn't even realize there were other pages of posts. This forum constantly confuses me. I'm not used to the short lists. Razz

My 29 measures at 30L 18H and 12W I don't see anything wrong with his tank or using danios to cycle. I used them on my 135 G but got impatient and ended up using BioSpira. Dumped it in and waalaa!! instant cycle.
Then the oscars ate them Laughing I did save two of them and they are still doing just fine back in the 135 that is now a community tank.

I have tetras in my cycle and they are just fine, I check up on them 100 times a day and mind you I was told to add them from a LFS which is the most reputable in my area

Mind you this was before I knew any better, and danios are very hardy - most other sites do recommend to cycle with danios.

Just my 2 cents - I also test my water everyday.

^ In my opinion, cycling with fish by any means is wrong.. I would very much prefer new fish keepers to cycle fishless.

I do agree with you Lunar, a fishless cycle is the better option - BUT I do hear about a lot of fishless cycles going through a mini cycle when fish are introduced, even in an orderly fashion, this just kills the fishless cycle option and also would result in harm to the fish don't you agree?

Well, in my opinion, if it is done properly, I don't see how that would occur. I think the chances are slim, and it would be much better to do a fishless by all means, even with that slim chance.
