29 gal. Will this work?
 
How does this sound for my 29 gallon planted freshwater tropical tank.

4 ghost catfish
2 Indian glass fish
1 anglefish
1 or 2 dwarf gourmis

Thanks!

Should work out really well as long as u don't have 2 much breeding!

Glass/Ghost cats need to be in groups of at least 6.

Glassfish are brackish, I believe. So they are out.

:shock::shock::shock: The Glassfish were sold to me like 4 months ago as freshwater fish..... Since they've lasted this long, I'm assuming they will last another night, but what should I do for them in the meanwhile until I can get them a new tank???

The other fish wont tolerate salinty levels, so you can either keep them as is or give them back. They can live in FW for a short while, but it shortens their life span.

Jessica 01-22-2009 11:15 PM

Ok, thanks. I'll check with the fish store tomorrow to see if they will take them.

Jessica 01-23-2009 12:17 PM

Ok the glassfish are moving out this afternoon. So how does this sound?

6 Glass catfish
1 freshwater angelfish
2 dwarf gourmis

I have a second tank about the same size (not sure the exact measurements) that I think I would like to connect via an aquabridge in the next 3 - 6 months... maybe expand my options a little bit...

jeaninel 01-23-2009 12:21 PM

I think I would only do 1 dwarf gourami. They tend to squabble if they are both males.

Cody 01-23-2009 12:27 PM

Agreed.

And The Angel may go after the glass cats once it matures, but I think that they would be too large for one.

You also have room for some bottom-dwelling fish, such as Corydoras Catfish or a pleco. Both would make very good additions. You could even have some Kuhlii Loaches if you don't like cories or plecos, or possibly YoYo loaches if you have sand and enough hiding spots.

Ok, so:
6 Glass catfish
1 freshwater angelfish
1 dwarf gourmi

And something for the bottom....
