HI There!

Just trying to plan ahead for our new to us 29 gallon tank. This is the stocking I was thinking of going with, let me know your thoughts?

1 pair of German Blue Rams
12 x Cardinal Tetras
6 x Corydoras Sterbai

Is there enough room for everyone? I’m planning on using pool filter sand and live plants. I’m hoping everyone will be happy with 27 degrees celsius, I know the GBRs like their water warm. Will do a fishless cycle and add the GBRs last.

You could do more cardinals or add another middwelling school, along with some honeys or a single dwarf gourami, IMO.

Something like this?

15x Cardinal tetras
8-10x SterbaI corys
2x Honey gouramis
2x German blue rams

OR

8x Cardinal tetras
8x Rummynose tetras
8-10x SterbaI corys
1x DG
2x GBRs

Thank you! Is there another species of middwellers that would be compatible? I’m not a huge fan of the look of Rummynoses. Sounds silly, but the red faces seem to remind me of blood. I’m a bit squeamish when it comes to that.

Thinking of avoiding DGs, as I’ve read they’re susceptible to a virus that is incurable? I did see an Opaline GouramI at a shop the other day, liked the look of it, but just did a quick search and it seems they can get aggressive? So not a good fit?

Thank you, just took a look and I like the cherry barbs! We have a platy and a couple guppies. I think I’d like to stay away from livebearers. The ones we have are super pigs. They outcompete everyone for food and just stuff themselves silly. I find it hard to feed our cories because they actually go to the bottom after eating their floating food and eat up the cories’ food!

How does this sound?

10 x Cardinal Tetras
10 x Cherry Barbs
8 x Corydoras Sterbai
2 x GBRs
