Welcome to the forum!
As per the Rosy Barb profile, (click on the name) "Lively but peaceful fish that will normally do well in a larger aquarium with similar-sized non-aggressive fish such as other barbs, rasbora and loaches. Must be kept in a group of at least six. Not suitable for slow, sedate fish because of its active swimming. Tankmates however must be able to manage with the lower temperatures this species prefers....
Several of the smaller loaches and barbs that suit a lower temperature would make good tankmates."
It recommends a 36" long tank. I believe 29 gallon tanks are 30". This may not be an issue, however, others would know more, I have never kept Rosys. Partly because the lower temperature they require can limit potential tankmates.
Do you have other fish tanks? Have you "cycled" your new tank?
Enjoy your new aquarium!!
