Zebra danios should be fine there. Just keep a watch on the betta and the danios as the danios may be a little nippy but will generally leave other fish alone when kept in a group of 6 or more.

What plecos do you have? Panda cories and otos are different.

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.

thanks for the help.
ok i dont know what kind of plecos i have but i will rehome them when they outgrow the tank. about the otos and panda cories in my lfs they say they are otos yet they look like panda cories, could i still put the cories in?

Panda Cory:




Oto:




Either would work compatability wise. Otos like groups of 3 or more. Pandas like 6 or more. Just watch you don't overstock.

3 platies
3 swordtails
3 plecos (still young i will rehome them)
4 or 5 panda cories
1 betta
will be ok in a 29 gallon?

and maybe
4 or 5 danios (not sure yet i have to make sure the lfs stocks them)

That should be ok. Most of those fish don't get very big. (except the plecos; what kind do you have?)

They are all nice communtiy tank fish. Make sure the cories get enough food with the swordtails being there, though.

ok thanks, i think that my femlae platy will be more of a problem then my swordtail when it comes to food lol she is so greedy, but i know what you mean. do cories need alot of algae? or can they eat the fish flakes? (sorry about the dumb questions )

fish flakes would be fine for the corys. thats wat i give mine and they love them. just make sure that some make it to the bottom. your plans for your tank sound great! they should all get along just fine.
