What are some good small fish to go into a 29g. tank? Ones that are not live breeders, and that dont get bigger than an inch and a half, perferably?

This is the tank they would be going into.


Any suggestion?

What about Dwarf Gouramis, they are lovely fish, pretty and characterful (well mine are,) and would love the hidey holes provided by the caves there, although they would appreciate a few more plants too. They get to 2".

dwarf gouramis, micro-rasboras, scarlet badis, or just about any tetra would work.

Thank you guys. are most/all top to mid level fish? because they would be going in a tank with some plecos. gouramis, cichlids, scarlet badis, are the top picks, I would like one who would leave the pleco's well enough alone, and are not agressive.

what sort of plecos are you aiming for? pitbull and bristlenose are about the only plecs that stay small enough for your tank... or are you thinking about otocinclus? (which are great little fish) gouramis like to hang out near the surface, dwarf south american cichlids hang out at the bottom, and badis kind of bounce around near the middle. none of these fish will bother a plec or otto.

well its between a leopard frog pleco, a clown pleco, or a bristle/bushy nose pleco. And as far as fish go, microrasbora? sparkling gourmi? honey dwarf gourami?

i'd go with a bristlenose if you're looking for something to actively eat algae. you should probably steer clear of microrasboras and sparkling gouramis if you're going to have cichlids. i think they would be just way too easy and tempting. honey gouramis can be pretty sensitive, but if you feel confident, go for it :)

Gouramis are generally top level, dwarf SA cichlids are low level.
