Regarding the Danio's they are also in the process of being rehomed, I still have a few days left on the 30 day Petco return so will probably do that Saturday as well. Was going to pick up some Rasbora and Tetras from either Petco/LFS depending on what they have in stock and/or are willing to trade for the clown's and danio's.
Here is the final fish stocking goal with a 29g planted tank (goal of "heavily planted").
5 Harlequin Rasbora
5 Head and Tail Light Tetra (or similar)
1 Blue Gourami
3 Brochis (Emerald Catfish)
Too much, too little, just right. Suggestions/comments welcome :)
That is fine. Though I would increase the rasbora to 6 or 7. The tetra should be fine with 5.
There are thre very similar species in Trigonostigma, the Harlequin Rasbora, Lambchop Rasbora and Hengels Rasbora as we've commonly named them in the profiles. The latter two are a tad smaller and in my view more interesting; esp the Hengels with its bright copper arc. But all are peaceful, very much so, and like to remain in the group as they swim through the plants.
