not wat i was thinkin

Mustang Boy 08-01-2008 10:12 PM

how about some Chichlids from Lake Tanganyika like shellies a colony of shellies would be great and fun to watch

onefish2fish 08-01-2008 10:37 PM

yes, indeed it wasnt what "you was thinkin" however according to you it is "up to us, to decide"

- unfortunatly gators wouldnt work ( ofcourse ) so :idea: go with 2 marbeled angels, 1 white angel, and 1 black angel .. i think that would be interesting. if you do this and your adding live plants, i would do the entire tank floor in short foreground plants just to maximize the angels space to swim.

yeh i have def. been debating the angel idea...idk if i would plant it or not and if i did it def. wouldnt get planted till christmas when i get some money but i mite do angels

any other interesting fish

i love discus butthat would be too small for a good group

i also like bichirs! they are fun, cute looking eels, but can also be expensive. but an eel for sure if u want big fish

if not go for 25 neons tetras and then 10 cories! :| that would look so cool

frogman6 08-02-2008 11:00 AM

a bichir would not fit in a 29 for its in entire life

yeh i was thinkin a big school of neon tetras would be cool and def. some corys

do u think i could keep a pair of kribs, some neons, and some corys....this is just one of my also debating angels

4 angels wouldn't work in a 29 gallon, especially if you ended up with a mating pair. Maybe one would work- but more than that won't. They either need to be kept alone or in groups to spread out aggression, and this tank isn't large enough for a group.

Neons are probably a bit small, and may get eaten by the kribs. I'd recommend getting a shoal of something a bit larger like red-eye tetras, serpae tetras or tiger barbs.

Some other interesting fish would be a dwarf pike like Crenicichla compressiceps or Crenicichla regani. Ctenopoma acutirostre are also unique and interesting.

I'll always throw my support behind tetras.

The tetra+cory+centerpiece fish is something I'm doing, but I'm going to use a german blue ram and a red tailed black shark for the showy fish.
