Hey TexasDomer remember you were helping with my post a while ago? How is it that I tag you so you can see my post? I need to get my test kit so I know if I'm cycled or not still.TexasDomer said:Welcome to Fishlore!
Unfortunately there are a few issues with that stocking.
I would leave the Congos out - they get to a pretty good size, and I don't think they're appropriate for a 29 gal tank.
Platies are fine, though I would keep all males so you're not overrun with fry.
Blue gouramis get a little too big for this tank, at 6" each.
Depends on the bottom feeder, but there are ones that will work in this tank!
What about this stocking?
12x Skirt tetra (black, white, or glo, as they're all the same species)
4-6x Male platies
1x Dwarf gouramI (just one - males will fight to the death and females are hard to find and aren't as pretty)
10x Panda cories or KuhlI loaches
There are still some issues with that stocking though.nicolepdurkee said:thanks for the tips
We've actually decided to get a 60 gallon. Would the original fish I listed above be good in that size tank?
It's 12.75 inches L, 48.5 inches W, and 25 inches in HTexasDomer said:There are still some issues with that stocking though.
What are the dimensions of the 60 gal? We can suggest some plans for you
