New 30 gal

Just got a 30 gal, a penguin 125 and a penguin 175 off Craig's List. So far no leaks. I am planning on putting tetras, cory's, rainbow's in here. Any suggestions as to how many of each school? It will be planted, as well.

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

id do 15 glowlights, though you could probably do more, 6 or 8 cories, aaaaaand 2-4 rainbows, im not sure about the rainbows how they behave in groups and the ideal numbers... but i think im doing exactly the same only with 2 gourami instead of rainbows. its nice and balanced imho :)

20 or more Ember tetras, 10 or more panda cories, 6 hatchets and a heavily planted 30g tank.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!

I am working on my 28g now. I wouldn't say heavily planted more like medium-ly :)

I am starting with 8 glowlight tetras, and 4 leopard corys (trilienatus, err however you spell it). They are happily enjoying their new environs as we speak.

Hope to add a few more corys (or maybe a kuhlii loach or two) and few more tetra, and really would like the main celebrity to be a dwarf gourami (and 2 consorts)

But I think I may be pushing my limits at that point. We'll see.

Oh, and sorry, I didn't mean to derail or anything, just saying what I got going since I just finished my cycling recently and this is direction I am going :)

Cheers.
