As far as the 29 gallon goes me and the wife decided to go with a peaceful community.
I've been going crazy with how much contradictory information i have read!!!! i appreciate the help!
You can use filter medium, gravel, plants and ornmanets from the 29 to seed the 55 and help cycle it faster.
I would not add any small substrate (cory's, otto's, etc) fish in the 55 with the Rainbow Shark as it will most likely kill/eat them. If you could give us the water parameters like pH, gH and kH we can suggest something but without that information we could steer you in the wrong direction.
What fish are you thinking about for the 29?
