You can add probably 100 more fish if you want. A pleco would be fine, I'm confused about this random 29 gallon tank. A 110 gallon tank could fit a lot of plecos.
I you do get one just be sure it is one of the smaller species such as a bristle nose.Sorry about the confusion...I hit the tag wrong! Silly me, I have a 29-gallon and I’m wanting a pleco.
The problem with algae eaters is ...
1. They often aren't compatible with the temperature of your tank.
2. Often "conflict" with whatever the rest of your stock load is.
3. Push your stocking load up.
4. Often don't eat algae!!! LOL - or enough of it.
5. Usually all of the above.
I mean, you can plan it out carefully and maybe you'll find a compatible species but you won't know if they'll handle your algae issues until you already have them. They're kind of like TATTOOS - sound like a good idea but then you're stuck with 'em. A lot of people say go for the snails - but a lot of them breed like wildfire.
For a 29-gallon, just get a 9-watt GREEN KILLING MACHINE U/V and be done with algae altogether.
If it works anything like a normal uv, how would that kill algae that isn't free floating?
I think it sounds good but what are you GPH
I think you posted this earlier, and it was suggested that you had a temp problem with a GBR and the rest of your stock. Just saying.Hello I need, NEED a algae eater but I think that if I get one that I might be over stocking! This is my stocking
1 dwarf Gourami
1 Bolivian ram
1 German blue ram
10 neon tetras
2 kuhlI loaches
Can I add a pleco in this 29-gallon?!
