centerpiece for a 29g
 
SO... ive decided that I would feel really bad leaving my 1 juvie green severum in my 29g indefinitely even though popular opinion seems to favor that he will do just fine in it. Once he gets another inch or two bigger he is going into the 110g with the big boy severums.

so... now I need a new centerpiece for my 29g. Its somewhat planted (eventually all planted) with 6 trilineatus cories, 1 apisto (wont be there for too long i hope) and 10 glowlight tetras... what would you guys throw in there? I asked a while ago and the only thing that was suggested was an ABF, which im not to keen on just because they might eat my tetras. Would maybe something like a keyhole do ok in there?

Keyholes are fine. So are Bolivian rams and pearl gouramis.

I am caring for five keyhole cichlids. They are a cute litttle fish but I could not imagine just one. The ones I have swim around 75 gal. like they were attached with string. They ,like the bolivian rams appreciate frequent water changes. And will eat just about everything. :D

what about a pair of them then? would they be happy in a 29g?

and im not necessarily in love with the thought of keyholes. I mean I am, but i will also explore other avenues :)
