That's a great looking tank, especially for a first effort! Had you just filled the tank with water prior to taking the photo? The reason I ask is that it looks like there are loads of air bubbles attached to the inside of the glass. You can gently wipe these off using your hand.

What size is the tank, and what do you plan on putting in it?

For a 29 gallon I would give the angelfish a miss, they can get quite large and you'd really need a bigger tank for them. The bolivian rams would be good, or perhaps GBRs (german blue rams).

Rather than going for two very small groups of tetras, why not go for one larger colourful group instead? The fish would be more comfortable in a larger group. As for corys.. there's loads out there to choose from.

Be careful getting dwarf frogs - I've never kept them before but have heard that certain ones view small fish as dinner.

Do you have a test kit yet? If not, I'd recomment a liquid test kit with tests for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. API make a good set, and it lasts for ages.

you deffinately would not be able to fit all of those fish in a 29 gallon tank. angel fish when full grown should be kept in a larger tank than 29 gallons. the rest of the fish would get along, except the rams might be a little aggressive but you cant fit them all in your tank. which ones do you want the most?
