Actually, in most lists, a woman/girl would get a ton
of responses!! ;-)
>I would like some advice on planting a 29G long.
I am not familiar with a 29G "Long" -- I have a
recently setup 29G that measures 30X12X18 inches
(lwh). AFAIK, this is the standard 29G tank.
I have found that is is difficult to aquascape a
narrow AND tall tank like this effectively. One
thing I would recommend is using driftwood and large
rocks to add some height, and then surround the
rock / driftwood with low growing plants like
hairgrass or glosso.

I would keep nitrates 10-15 mg/L.

That's a ton of light for this type of tank -- I hope
you have gas CO2! And lots of time to prune!
>I would like to an nice looking and healthy tank!!
>maybe some tall plants in the back?
I would allow the background to show through in a few
spots to give the tank depth.
>tank is 12" deep X 36" long X 18" high.
This would be more than 29 gallons -- see above.
Hope this helps!
Feel free to email me, and I can send you some pics of my 29G tank.
