Zebra danios should be fine there. Just keep a watch on the betta and the danios as the danios may be a little nippy but will generally leave other fish alone when kept in a group of 6 or more.

What plecos do you have? Panda cories and otos are different.

thanks for the help.
ok i dont know what kind of plecos i have but i will rehome them when they outgrow the tank. about the otos and panda cories in my lfs they say they are otos yet they look like panda cories, could i still put the cories in?

Either would work compatability wise. Otos like groups of 3 or more. Pandas like 6 or more. Just watch you don't overstock.

hmm i think they are panda cories.

oh about over stocking do you think that
3 platies
3 swordtails
3 plecos (still young i will rehome them)
4 or 5 panda cories
1 betta
will be ok in a 29 gallon?

and maybe
4 or 5 danios (not sure yet i have to make sure the lfs stocks them)
thanks again :D

That should be ok. Most of those fish don't get very big. (except the plecos; what kind do you have?)

They are all nice communtiy tank fish. Make sure the cories get enough food with the swordtails being there, though.

ok thanks, i think that my femlae platy will be more of a problem then my swordtail when it comes to food lol she is so greedy, but i know what you mean. do cories need alot of algae? or can they eat the fish flakes? (sorry about the dumb questions :oops: )

fish flakes would be fine for the corys. thats wat i give mine and they love them. just make sure that some make it to the bottom. your plans for your tank sound great! they should all get along just fine. :nicefish:

hehe thanks crazy4fish i dont think my lfs has danios in right now but they are always getting in differnent breeds when they can find a breeder etc

crazy4fish 01-03-2008 03:35 PM

samw with my lfs. i havent seen danios there in a while. i had some once. but when i bought them i didnt think i would like them that much but they were really fun to watch! :lol: they werent too nippy either. i hope yours will be as entertaining as mine! :D
