Also I am super interested in inverts for FW... so any ideas on that is accepted too.. and the 3G tank is a cylinder shape.. so not much surface area at all. But I prefer to make the 29G into a very very nice planted tank for inverts only pretty much with one or two small fish.. maybe more depending on your opinions. Same for the 3G/10G. But I need to know where to put the GSP first. Well thanks in advance for your help. (G/f wants the GSP in our 95G community tank, but I don't think that's such a good idea..)
I keep GSPs and I wouldn't recommend anything less than 30g per full grown fish. GSPs are vicious little guys and will pretty much kill any other life in the tank. Including, but not limited to, plants, inverts, fish, crickets, worms, small crustaceans, and other insects/insect larvae, etc. Solo fish basically. It would kill EVERYTHING (fish up to 3x its size) in your 95g. Eventually.
You could actually keep 2-3 juveniles in that 29 for a few years though.
