Need help choosing what fish to put in a 29 gallon tank??
Hey i need some help choosing what fish to put in a 29 gallon tank.I know that i want some pleco's so they have to go with them and possibly mollies i like them to.It has alot of filtration but right now its cycling and i have a few small fish in it.These are going to go to my 15 gallon.Also if you know of plants the fish go with i would like to know thanks!

Apart from the plecos, do you have any idea what you would like?

I have a tank roughly the same size as yours, and here's what I have in mine at the moment.

13 neon tetras
8 black phantom tetras
1 red platy
2 plecos (ancistrus sp.3)
1 gold ram
1 blue ram
4 corydoras sterbai
2 guppys

You might want to consider getting some fish for each level of the tank, i.e. bottom, middle and top dwellers.

some plecos can get big. what kind of pleco did you want? a school of tetras would be nice.

Right now i have a common pleco that will outgrow my 10&&30 gallon but my dad at his house has a 90 gallon that has not many fish and he said that my large plco would go well in his tank?

And that tank of yours sounds good maybe i should get something like that!

thanks :D

Thats great that you have plans for the pleco! Being but seriously. It all depends what you like. There are Neon tetra's, well once the tank has been established for a few months, There are MANY options! Mollies, platy's, cardinal tetras, neons, danios, there's an unlimited list!
