what have you seen that does not interest you, so we dont post them again?

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Here's ideas for a starting point, but it needs some adjustments.

Cookie Cutter - 29-gallons
(Be sure to click the link to check out the 20g cookie cutter ideas.)

Again, I don't recommend them all as is, but its a spring board for ideas at least.

I've got a 29 gal that I plan to stock with a school of tetras, kuhli loaches, and a small gourami.

But you have to tell us what you don't want before we can give you suggestions; otherwise we could sit here and throw out every single name of every single fish that could possibly put in that tank. That is a long list.

The angelfish in a 29 gallon wont work unless its a breeding pair and even then you wouldnt want anything else in the tank with them as they would attack it. The other fish you have mentioned would work though.

Angel fish are best kept in groups of 5 or more in a 55+ gal tank. You can look for them in our fish profiles.

Smallish fsh are best suited to a 29g. What are your water parameters, meaning hardness and pH? This too will help us narrow down suggestions. Live plants are another aspect, in this sized tank with smaller fish the presence of plants is important.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
