Hey everyone! I just got started with my first aquarium. It's a 29 gallon low tech planted tank. I eventually want to set up a community tank with a betta, cory cats, tetras, and snails. I'm waiting for the cycle to start, and was wondering if anyone local (Lynchburg) could donate a bit of substrate or filter media so I can seed my tank for faster cycling?

Also, any tips and suggestions are welcome.

Any other schooling fish you would recommend in my tank? My daughter is 14 months and LOVES watching fish so that's one reason we got started with the tank. I want her to have lots to watch without overstocking.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome! This is a late response to your post but I wouldn't worry too much about seeding you tank if you start a tank with tetras they are pretty hardy. Just make sure you use some conditioner and set up your tank a week before you buy your fish. I wouldn't recommend putting bettas in a community tank because unless they are females they will fight with each and other fish. I would stick with guppies, tetras, swordtails, and mollies. Just do some research on how much space each fish needs. It always seems like they need a ton of space but in the long run you will have beautiful big fish Smile
