I would caution on dwarf gourami, for reasons noted in the profile. The Honey Gourami would be suitable, a small group in a 29g is OK with other compatible fish.
I would steer clear of 4+ inch fish in a 29g. Except for some substrate fish like the Whiptail Catfish. Upper fish of that length usually have girth too, and will look out of place in a small window.
Thanks for the advice Byron. I appreciate it.
I was mainly looking for a center piece fish and exactly what you suggest like the cat fish for the bottom feeders. Is there any smaller type of cat fish that I could put in there. I don't want anything getting TOO big in these small tanks.
It looks like one of my mollies has Ich. I don't yet have an issolation tank. Should I get the API Ich medicine to treat him.
His right eye is swollen and has white spots appearing all over his body. He is still swimming fine. My tank had a Nitrite spike so I just did a 50% water change.
Once I set up the 29 tank it gets going I was planning on putting all of my males in there so I don't have any more babies. That's 3 mollies.
