suggestions for 29 gal freshwater.
 
As I sit at the computer at work I am looking also at 29 gal. With sand (playground) substrate. Combination of liveplants (anubia on driftwood and java fern ) and artificial. The current inhabitants are ..six glass bloodfin Tetras used during cycling, Six Julii corydoras,and five Serpae Tetras. I am moving the glass bloodfin tetras to ten gal at home. And am looking for something that will look nice AND get along with the serpaes and corys. Any suggestions?

What about some keyhole cichlids?

I just found new homes for five keyhole cichlids in order to make room for what will be a rather large polleni cichlid. I do miss their antics. I am leaning towards dwarf or apistos for the 29 gal. Thanks for lookin out! :)

Neon's?

They look great, they aren't expensive, and they don't have long fins to antagonize the serpaes.

Hmmmm, I could see a dozen of them in contrast to the red serpae's. It is very difficult to find healthy ones in my neck of the woods but perhaps I'll go on a Road trip .There are four Lfs in my area along with Petco.

Healthy? How so?

I've been lucky maybe as I have eight plump healthy neons in my tank right now. One of them had a rough time of it to begin with but he got better after about a week.

Many of the shops get them by the dozens. I have looked closely at them and have found some with ICH others with POPEYE and still others whose colors were faded which to me means sick or old specimens. I did manage to find a dozen some weeks ago that I wanted for Discus tank. After two weeks of quarantine eight survived. Don't know if POPEYE was accurate diagnosis but ones that perished looked like this... :shock:
