    What would you do with a standard 29 gallon? Looking for some inspiration.

    Oh my! One of my special peeps just did one! Totally awesome! I’ll try to find it. Makes me so jealous!

    I would probably do a tank for shell dwelling cichlids.

    I’ve been searching for this thread! I’m still trying to find the most beautiful 29 ever!

    My 29 gallon is my community tank, currently houses:

    1 BN pleco

    1 clown pleco

    4 female platies

    2 guppy fry

    2 male Bolivian rams

    4-8 nerite snails

    3-4 assassin snails

    It used to be a home to all of my livebearers, of which I had mollies, guppies, and platies. Then I had a gourami shoal (3-4 at a time) as a centerpiece which was very nice. Now I’m experimenting with dwarf cichlids. Plants really add character, and I love a naturally inspired tank. I’ll see if I have some pictures. You can really do a lot with a 29 gallon. It’s like a happy medium between too small and a bit large :D. Hopefully this gave you some inspiration, happy scaping!

    Edit: I just realized that my Anubias looks absolutely dreadful, I moved recently and I think my plants had a bit of a shock. I’ll clean it up.

    I don't know, I think it might be a myth.:D

    With my head it could be imagination. :)

    Everything that is currently in my 29 will move to the 75 when it is cycled.
    Then I plan to tear down the 29, replace the gravel with sand, add more plants and stick it with a shoal of peppered cories and a school of harlequin rasboras
