Apistos or rams. Basically a community, nothing more.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I put 2 apistos in my 29, then added a couple more tetras (against my better judgement) and boom, the apistos spawned :O so far only once but talk about over stocked now lol I need to give away some apistos to the LFS so my ammonia doesnt keep going up... I only have 1 penguin 200 on there.

as for the rest, my glowlights, red eyes, and cories, they are entirely entertaining to watch.

Keyholes, Rams, any Apistos, Killifish are pretty or even a pair of Paradise fish. I'd go with a pair Apistos and some tetras.
