Neon Alien Aquarium Theme

This is my first aquarium a 29 Gal. Tank I got from my Brother-inlaw Dec. 07
I started out with 2 Giant Danio`s. That were gifted with the tank; Quite Mature Fish Approx. 4.5-5`` Big. So Time to Cycle the tank and get stuff started. Here`s a look at my first setup.

After Adding A few Fish And rearranging my decor I Decided To Make A Neutral Buoyancy Ufo So It Could Move Around The Tank With The Water Current. Here`s A few more pics.

After Adding More Glowing Stuff Like A Crashed Saucer, Alien Kang (From The Simpsons) A Couple Plants and a
Airstone + a little rearranging. Its Looking Good So Far.

Neon Alien Aquarium Theme

After checking the web i found more cool ideas And Products I just had to have. So I Purchased A Hydor Ario Volcano, Neon Coral`s And Black Tahitian Moon Sand + a New Background. After More Rearranging And Working out The New Water Currents This is The New Setup And it Seems To Work Nicely. With The New Decor And Now Fully Cycled Tank, The Tank Needed More Fish or at least I did.
So Now The Line Up Is:

3 Clown Loaches
1 Bala Shark
1 Silvertip Shark
4 Giant Danio`s
2 Plecos
1 Blue Snail
1 Platy
1 Neon
7 Guppies

I liek your set-up, but you have way too many fish.

Clown loaches will reach 12-14". Tank size of 75+ gallons.
Bala Shark wil reach 14-18", and should have at least 3 in a group. Tank size of 125+ gallons.
Pleco's will reach 5-24", depending on specie, and they poop as much as a 10-48" fish. What kind do you have? Most will need a 100+ gallon tank with very good filtration.
Giant Danios wil get 6-8". Tank size of 55+ gallons.
The Guppies will reproduce like crazy if have you males and females.
Neon Tetras should have at least 6 in a group.
Platies should have at least 5 in a group.
Silvertip Sharks will reach 24".

For this set-up, you will need a 200+ gallon tank.

What are you water params? You need to get some out.
