Could I get to Discus in my 29 community tank. There is 10 rummynose tetras, 1 banjo catfish, 1 male pearl gourami, 1 male neon blue stiphodon goby, 4 platies, 5 cory catfish, and 1 male albino bushynose pleco. Would they get along with the discus? My ph is 7.0 to 7.2. Ammonia is 0. Nitrate is 0. Nitrite is 0. Is this alright? It is a planted tank with two pieces of driftwood, a lot of river rock, and a sand bottom.

The short answer, no. Discus are shoaling fish and need a group, and they get too large for a 29g. Read more in the profile, click the shaded name.

Aside from the space issue, in larger quarters some of the named fish would be compatible, some trouble.

Angels can't be housed with gourami. They will fight extensively and possibly to the death. Not to mention that angels also get quite large.

I'm just going to agree with everyone else on the angel subject. I'd even go so far as to say you shouldn't add anything else. You have some fish that get a fairly decent size on there as well as some stocking issues.

Not trying to jump on your case, but just point a few things out. The gourami should be in a larger tank. A 29 gallon is 30" in length, for that fish you want a minimum of 36". Those six inches make a difference. The platies should have hard, basic water which is the total opposite of what some of those fish, especially the rummynose need. The stiphodon needs high current so the oxygen has enough water, that won't be liked by the rest of the fish.

he is right here, however keep in mind its ur tank and you can do whatever you like just be prepaired to have issues if you keep the current setup for a period of time not to mnetuon the fish stress and of course disease/parasites.
