I like your tank setup, Is that a yellow lab? I agree you will love your communbity tank I think. I have a 55, 30, and 10 communioty tank, and they are always moving around there. More active and fun for my 5 year old and guests to watch. They leave my other tanks to me hehe.

Ya thats what I think Im going to do, just wait and see what happeneds. Heck it may just help me from having my plants take over the tank lol.

Ya thats my thinking, my GF, my son, and my GFs daughter will hang out in GF's daughters room and watch her 10 gallon tank but could careless about my 29 LOL. I have had to many people come in and say "nice tank when are you going to get fish". Makes me laugh and then I have to hunt to point out the three

Oh and ya thats a yellow lab. Tends to swim around more then the others

Also consider adding a "centerpiece" to your tank i find it just make the tank look better for some reason!

Fish and i would recomend either a red tailed shark or if you keep up on your water changes a gourami or maybe a betta depending on what kind of fish you have, fast and dont nip fins.

I have a community 55 gal tank. I was told by someone to get 1 angelfish as a baby. It will grow up with the smaller fish and be ok. I went ahead and bought 1 baby angel and it was fine with my 6 harleqen rasboras. Harleqen rasboras are really hardy fish. I've had my 6 for a long tiime. My 1 Angelfish lived for a long time and grew to about 6" in size. I bought it when it was about the size of a nickel. It died recenty and I was given 2 small angelfish and they are fine with my smaller fish. They have a personallity and come to the front of the tank when they see you walk by or look into the tank. They are so cute. Maybe get 1 angelfish as your big center peice fish. Certain tetras are sensitive sometimes to water qty. I've heard that zebra danios are really hardy as some people cycle their tanks with them.

welp I just picked up 4 cory's, 6 red-eye'd tetras, and 6 neons. I will be getting more 2-3 more of each of those. The red eye's seem to be picking on the neons and Im hoping that numbers will calm that down. Hoping to get some cardinals next week(guy said they may go on sale). Im also thinking of getting a few otto's

So final numbers Im thinking are going to be
7 corys
8 red eyes
10 neons
5 cardinals
4 ottos

Does that sound like to much for a 29 gallon?
