New 29 gallon Aquarium

I am going to pick up a new 29 gallon tank soon, and I am working on the list of fish I want. I know I want a few Neon Tetras and some Ghost shrimp. How many Neon Tetra's and Ghost shrimp can I safely put in a 29 gallon tank?

I would also like to add some angelfish if they are ok to put in with ghost shrimp.

No angelfish, they get too big. You could do something like a Blue Ram or a gourami or something though....just one. And probably 10 tetras depending on what you want....ghost shrimp it really doesn't matter cuz they don't produce a whole lot of waste and your bigger fish will probably pick em off one by one anyways.

I went back and looked again, the tank was actually a 20 gallon, so I'm pretty sure that takes the Blue Ram off the list. Any other fish that would fit well?

Why would it take the blue rams off the list? I just got a 20 gallon and I'm stocking it with platies, one possibly two rams, some cory cats, AFDs probably shrimp. I have a lot of filtration so I won't be too overstocked.

I thought Blue Rams needed 30 gallons? If they can live in a 20 gallon, then I would love to get one.

Nah, they max out at like 2 1/2" Or something, a 20 gallon is fine, you could either get two females, or one male, or I'm not sure if the tetras would act as a dither fish but if they did then you could get a male and female and let them spawn.

I think a ram or possibly even a pair would work just fine in a 20g. The tank is too small for an angelfish in my opinion, though.
