    Hey everyone! Since my 40 gallon is finally settled down(no more fish are dying), I decided to put my 30(might be 29) gallon long into use! It's dimensions are: 30-3/16"L x 12-1/2"W x 18-3/4"H. It is cycling right now, and has been for 2 weeks. The nitrites in the tank just spiked, so I hope in a week or 2 it will finish cycling.:) Now on to the stock! With the help of my more knowledgeable brother, fighter55, I have come up with a few ideas.

    Idea 1:
    2 Bolivian Rams
    6 Panda Cories
    9 Emperor Tetras

    Idea 2:
    2 Honey Gouramis
    6 Kuhli Loaches
    10 Penguin Tetras

    Idea 3:
    2 Angels
    7 Gold Barbs
    6 Panda Cories

    What do you think? I am willing to change any of these fish, so please leave your opinion!:)

    I like idea 1 and 2 the best.

    I think you could bump both schools up to 10 in each list. Then I also think you have room for maybe 3-4 platy just for a pop of color.

    I was kind of leaning towards 1 too. Since my brother is already getting kuhli loaches and a honey gourami, I'll be able to see them, without buying them. So, since I like 1 too, the final stock is 2 Bolivian Rams, 10 Panda Cories, 10 Emperor Tetras, and 3-4 Platys. Sounds good to me! Thanks for the help everyone! I'l' have pics posted soon!
