If all you have in your 29g is a shoal of Black Skirt Tetras (and maybe bottom fish), you could add a small group (5) of diamond tetras. They must be in a group, as indeed all the tetras since they are shoaling fish and will always be healthier in groups. I've had these previously, and only this week was looking at them in a store and wondering...
A very beautiful fish, but only truly so in a well-planted tank with soft slightly acidic water; in water that is neutral to slightly basic/alkaline they do not colour as well. And the plants and dim light (filtered through floating plants) really lets them sparkle true to their common name. I had two fry survive one time in my 115g, they are prolific and regular spawners when the environment is to their liking.
Angel, I had to dig in my research on the nipping, I'd forgotten, but they are mentioned as possible nippers when not in a group. Right on, Natalie.
