Is a 29 gallon tank decent sized?
I have had a 10 gallon tank for over a year now that I originally got to put my betta in and added a couple harlequins. The betta died recently, but I still like having fish, and was looking to upgrade. Looking at 55 gallons, I think that should be ruled out because it will look way too big for where I am putting it. I saw a 29 gal kit for under $89 and was considering that, because it would not take up much more room now than the 10 gal I have does. And considering that just the tank and hood alone would cost that much, you'd be getting $60-$70 worth of a heater and filter included with that, that seems like a good price. Do you guys think that is a decent size tank? I would put those 4 harlequins in to start with, then I am not sure what else after. Maybe one or two larger centerpiece type fish, some more harlequins or other schooling fish, something like that. Do you think this size would be worth it, or should I just stick with what I have? This has a 30" length, and the only other ones that might work would be at a 36" length (like maybe in the 30-40 gallon range), but that would probably be double the price (and more than a 55 gal kit even).
