The cichlid is actually now Neolamprologus multifasciatus
, as of a revision in 1991; in case you are searching for it.
This is a Lake Tanganika cichlid, and the water in that lake is about as hard as freshwater can be--many refer to it as "liquid rock." The fish need hard basic water, much harder that any characins from SA can manage in long-term. I really would not combine them. Plus the fact that even though small in size, it is quite an aggressive fish, and mild-mannered tetra will not stand a chance when this fish gets settled. N. multifasciatgus
is small enough to mange fine in a 10g where it can be on its own in a small group or pair. They are shell dwellers, and will do better with some empty shells. Youo can find out a lot more here: Neolamprologus multifasciatus - Seriously Fish
The 29g can then be set up for the tetra community.
