Phantom Pleco will be way to big for that tank. They reach 7 inches as adults. If you are looking for a good algae eater, Do the bristlenose pleco.

Clown pleco. I can't think of another that'll fit in a 29 and be temp. compatible with a betta

I keep L333 'King Tiger Pleco' with my betta, it's a nice small pleco and they don't bother them

From what I've just read on them, they like a nice flow as they're from streams. Don't think I'd put it with a betta due to that, don't want the fins getting torn up.

I've adjusted my tank so the areas that the bettas don't use (its my sorority) has heavier flow

I would do a clown pleco. It's a warm water pleco, it would be a great addition to your tank.
