Thinking of getting a 29 gallon
What type of fish would you guys get for a 29 gallon? I'm intrested in intresting colorful fish that would liven the tank up.
Which group of fish interests you the most? That's the question which can narrow down the possibilities. For loaches though, try Pangios. Tetras, rasboras, apistos, keyholes, rams and danios should work.
I love a variety of fish so I would like several different types. I love all those suggestions.
The venerable 29g tank is, in my opinion, the best starter tank for the beginner. It is large enough to house a variety of fishes. It is relatively economical. Maintainence is much easier than keepin up a 10g tank.
I have two 29g tanks that house a few of my livebearers. It is large enough to be planted. You can make a nice blackwater tank with tetras, plants and driftwood. You can add a few dwarf cihlids. The possibilities are almost endless.
Thanks. I really want a Ctenopoma acutirostre or spotted climbing perch for my community so it would have to be fish that could be kept with one. From what I hear they have to be too big for this fish to eat.
Why not do a speciman tank of just Ctenopoma acutirostre, that would be really cool. If you like color you could go with Dwarf Gouramis and Harlequin rasboras.
At almost 6 inches full grown I would have to agree that a specimen tank might be the way to go. At that size, most community fish would be snacks. I think a 6 inch perch could easily eat any guppies, platties, swords and most other live bearers as well as most Rasboras and tetras. Their need for hiding places and lots of plants also suggests a possible territorial behavior. I think that a tank of 3-4 of them would be really cool and you might even be bale to teach them to eat from your hand.
Compatable fish might be:
BN pleco or other small plecos
Discuss ( not sure about that one)
