suggestions for 29 gal freshwater.

As I sit at the computer at work I am looking also at 29 gal. With sand (playground) substrate. Combination of liveplants (anubia on driftwood and java fern ) and artificial. The current inhabitants are ..six glass bloodfin Tetras used during cycling, Six Julii corydoras,and five Serpae Tetras. I am moving the glass bloodfin tetras to ten gal at home. And am looking for something that will look nice AND get along with the serpaes and corys. Any suggestions?

I just found new homes for five keyhole cichlids in order to make room for what will be a rather large polleni cichlid. I do miss their antics. I am leaning towards dwarf or apistos for the 29 gal. Thanks for lookin out! :)

Neon's?

They look great, they aren't expensive, and they don't have long fins to antagonize the serpaes.

Hmmmm, I could see a dozen of them in contrast to the red serpae's. It is very difficult to find healthy ones in my neck of the woods but perhaps I'll go on a Road trip .There are four Lfs in my area along with Petco.

Healthy? How so?

I've been lucky maybe as I have eight plump healthy neons in my tank right now. One of them had a rough time of it to begin with but he got better after about a week.

Many of the shops get them by the dozens. I have looked closely at them and have found some with ICH others with POPEYE and still others whose colors were faded which to me means sick or old specimens. I did manage to find a dozen some weeks ago that I wanted for Discus tank. After two weeks of quarantine eight survived. Don't know if POPEYE was accurate diagnosis but ones that perished looked like this...
