Check out my new tank! And any suggestions?
 
Here is my new 29 gallon FW tank. It is now stocked withL

2 Dwarf Guarmis
3 Dalmation Mollies
8 Neon Tetras
6 Corys
4 Glow Light Tetras
4 Rummy nose tetras

Any suggestions for anything I could/should add to the tank? I was thinking of getting a small ship wreck for the front and maybe a background for the tank? Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!

gravels pretty bright. what u could do is some real/fake or (bolth) plant for the fishes.

but other then that it looks good

looks good but i really like backgrouds as it gives the fish security

Nice tank.:thumbsup: Yes, I second the background.:)

A background would look nice, to hide the things behind the tank. Solid color backgrounds give a little depth to the tank.

IMO, bright substrate and bright decor steer the attention away from beautiful fish. Also, bright substrate may stress the fish, especially if it is white, since they reflect the light. I had white substrate when I had my clown loaches, but found them to hide allot. When I switched over to dark substrate, they soon started being more active in the tank.

background and remove the fake coral. I like your stock list.

i think the best thing to do is get a background for it, i have a 30 gallon with a background and it enhances the beauty so much. also id stick to things that are in freshwater, what i mean is dont mix fake freshwater plants with fake corals. thats just my opinion though.

One of my dalmation mollies already gave birth to a few babies. Any suggestions on what I do for them or just leave them?

Just leave them.:) They are quite prolific and you will be bombarded with more fry in a few weeks.:)
