29 Gal. Stocking Plan...
 
OK so I think I have finally decided on what I will be putting in my new tank (not so new it has been gone through a complete fishless cycle)... So let me know what you think of my plan!

8 Neon Tetras
6 Spotted or Harlequin Rasboras
3 Sparkling Gouramis
2 Honey Gouramis
3 Panda Cories
and maybe some Kuhli Loaches???

So tell me what you think? Overstocked? Understocked? Will they all get along?? Etc. etc....

i think you could add a few more small shoaling fish depending on your filtration

Thanks for the reply Jb....any suggestions on what species??
Can anyone else chime in on this matter?

Thanks!

20 neons tetras and 10 harlies will do for the mid level.:) Neons hardly contribute a large percentage of bioload.

20 Neons and 10 harlies!!! Man that seems like quite a few fish my tank...especially with all the others I had planned!!

But I've been wrong before.... :wink:

They are surface dwellers so I expect you have a lot of swimming space in the middle level for 20-30 neons and 10-15 harlies. If you make your tank heavily-planted, you can have more than that simply because plants also serve to be your filters.

Get more than just 3 panda cories. 6-10 would be nice along with 10 kuhli loaches. Who knew kuhlis are less bold when kept in a number of 4 or less?:shake:

Be sure to get the neons and panda cories last. Both are a little sensitive to water conditions compared to the rest(minus the sparkling gouramis which I never tried).
