I currently have 5 harlequin raspboras in my 29. I plan to switch the substrate from gravel to sand, then add 5 panda cories (in QT). I plan to get a few more of both species.

What else? Honey gourami? Bolivian ram? Kribensis? Pearl gourami? Cherry barbs? Another school of fish? I want a peaceful tank.

Looking for ideas!

I wouldn’t do Kribs. I would do
4 Honey Gouramis
12 Harlequins
2 Bolivian Rams
8 Panda Corys

OR

3-4 Honey Gouramis
8 Harlequins
8 Neon Tetras
2 Bolivian Rams
8 Panda Corys

I would go with cherry barbs, myself, just because I've found them more forgiving then many other fish

I do appreciate fish that are forgiving/ hardy.

By the way, my parameters are 0 0 5. pH 7.5. Soft water. 76 degrees.

I have heard that cherry barbs are quite entertaining!

I do miss my barbs. I had them for years. Don't forget to give your cherry barbs some organic salad from time to time. You can use a magnetic algae scraper to hold it in place for them

Salad? Interesting. Tell me more.

If I add cherry barbs, how many should I add? Would this work:

8 to 12 harlequins
8 panda corys
8 cherry barbs

Sounds like a cute and active tank. You'll have a lot of fun watching them! And yes, barbs do appreciate good salad
