First off, I am new to this website and this is my first post! I just got a 29 gallon tank and started cycling it with 3 clown loaches on Tuesday (April 16) (I already know they will get way too big and i plan on trading them in to my LFS in about a year or less. I got them before I read enough about them lol). Anyways, once the tank is cycled I want to get about 3-4 glass catfish. Other than that I like Black Skirt Tetras, Neon Tetras, Veil Angelfish, Red Wag Swordtails, etc. I LOVE the Tiger Barbs but I dont think i can get many other types of these fish with them. I like the schooling fish and dont necessarily need a centerpiece fish but I do like the Angelfish. My concern is overstocking since its a 29 gallon tank. (30x13x18). Any advice as to how I can maximize the amount of the above mentioned species in the tank would be appreciated. (I would be ok with 1 or 2 mollies or some guppies also, but not a big fan of Gourami's.). Extra considerations, I am trying live plants. Low light plants with a 6700K 20 watt life-glo bulb. Java Ferns, Sword plant and i'm open to suggestions for more. Not looking to heavily plant but a good amount would be nice.
