So I am new to the world of aquariums and am about to start my first one. I picked up an aqueon 29 gallon deluxe kit. It came with a tank (roughly 30" wide by 19" tall by 13"deep), heater, light shroud w/ plant friendly bulb, aqueon quietflow 30 filtration, and a few other miscellaneous things. I already have some caribsea super naturals substrate (will this be good enough for plants?) that I am waiting to put in. All I am waiting on to get the cycle going is a few plants, some driftwood, and ammonia, but I cant seem to find any ammonia.
Anyway on to my questions. I am trying to stick to a south american theme with the fish and overall look of the tank and I have a pretty solid plan for what I am going to put in it. So far its looking like:
1 raphael cat
4 peppered cory cats
6-8 neon tetras
I am looking for a good suggestion for one more south american fish to put in there. Maybe one that hangs around in the mid level of the tank since the tetras will be up top and the cats on the bottom. I was leaning towards an angelfish or maybe some guppies, but I wasnt sure. Also do you guys think the bottom will be too crowded with so many catfish in there? Thanks in advance guys
