I have wanted to get into keeping aquariums for quite some time now and have finally decided to do it! I bought an Oceanic Biocube 29 second hand off of Craigslist and broght it home and started cleaning it up last night. The guy I bought it from seemed to know a lot about the hobby and was telling me some of the features about the tank. As far as I understood it has all of its original parts and nothing extra. I have been reading about proper set up and maintaining of tanks, and I came across aquascaping and it interested me immediately! But I need help getting up and running so I do it right and don't end up killing any plants or fish. I scrubbed down the inside of the tank, should I also scrub down the filter and biomedia? Or Should I get new filter stuff? Should I just use tap water and treat it or should I get the filtered water in 5 gal jugs from Walmart? I plan on doing 25% water changes weekly, let me know if I should be doing that differently. I have a little beta tank with a few snails in it that I would want to transfer to my new bigger tank, should I wait til it is fully cycled or will they be ok while it cycles? I can't decide what type of scape I want to do, my wife is from Arizona and has lots of cholla skeleton which I think would be cool as the hardscape. I don't really know anything about plants or fish but I like African dwarf frogs so I think I'd like some of those in the tank. Sorry I have so many questions and thoughts, I feel like I'm just rambling now haha. But I'm excited to get started and hopefully get help along the way! Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
