So my 29 gallon is cycling right now and I'm doing the "oh I got a larger tank and get to have different fish" dance and I was set on list #1, but my hubby got ahold of google and this is what we came up with
My First List
6 white clouds (already owned)
5 julii corys (or some other smaller kind, not as large as emerald)
6 harlequin rasboras
1 gourami (a ligher colored species)
Guppies/swordtails for color
Nothing that looks like a minnow or long fish (no dannios etc)
Our Current List:
(note no bala shark LOL)
6 white clouds mountain minnows (maybe, I might rehome them)
1-2 Kribs (breeding pair)
5 small but not tiny corydoras
roughly 6 harlequin rasboras or 6 ghost tetras
6 rosy tetras
This video got us sold on the Rosy's and Kribs.. It took us a bit to find the rosy's.
My husband wants "color" and I want "small" fish so I can have a school of them
I'd like to have all the fish from list 3 with/without the white clouds.
We originally got on the idea of kribs doing research on blue rams, and we like the coloring of the kribs more.
Oh almost forgot. My tank sits at 78 at all times. I use prime at water changes and flourish once a week (usually about 1 hour after the water change). My Ph is 7.2-7.4 using api test kit. I do a 25%-35% water change once a week. My tank is black sand substrate (moon sand I got for super uber cheap. 70 lbs for $10) and live plants and fake. My light is 17w aqueon full spectrum to be updated soon with a better brighter bulb. My filter is currently an aqueon 30 (ok so it's the one that comes with the kit and I got a used kit) but I am updating to an aquaclear 50 soon as I can afford it.
