    Hello all!

    Here is my stocking list and idea for a likely future 29g tank. Feel free to give feed back on what you guys think! Thanks in advance for any help!


    (Disclaimer) (I know it's overstocked this is sorta the rough draft but still general idea)

    (AqAdvisor)

    Tank (LxDxH): 32 x 12 x 18 inch (29.9gUS)
    Filters: Aquaclear 70

    15x Neon Tetra
    10x Black Neon Tetra
    10x Black Skirt Tetra
    3x Sunburst Wag Platy
    8x Neitrite Snail (Still can nail the spelling)

    Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 119%.
    Recommended water change schedule: 37% per week.
    Your aquarium stocking level is 115%.

    Seems like too many fish for 29, it'd be way too busy with all those schoolers. I'd stick to just 1 school.

    I'm sorta going for a busy look, something stimulating, although I could take out the black neon tetras...

    I would stick to two schools - three is too many, and fish will be cramped.

    Ok. Sounds good I think'll take out the black neon tetras for now :)

    You have room for a bottom dweller, if you'd like :)

    Albino Cory? There supposed to be tough and are at my petco (A good petco)

    I love the idea of pygmy corys and I guess I could get them online...

    I think maybe the pygmys :)

    So how does this look:

    Tank (LxDxH): 32 x 12 x 18 inch (29.9gUS)
    Filters: Aquaclear 70

    20x Neon Tetra
    8x Black Skirt Tetra
    3x Platy (2 females to 1 male?)
    3x Netrite Snail
    6x Pygmy Cory

    Then maybe some ghost shrimp :)

    Your aquarium filtration capacity for above selected species is 135%. Question11.png
    Recommended water change schedule: 33% per week.
    Your aquarium stocking level is 105%.

    Sorry forum lagged :)

    Pygmy cories don't stay on the bottom - they tend to swim in the middle of the tank. They also should be in larger groups. I wouldn't go with pygmies because then you'll have too many fish in the middle column of the tank. 8 or so albino cories would be great though!

    You don't need to post the Aqadvisor stats. They aren't accurate anyway.

    Ok, sounds great! So I'll just take out the pygmys for the albinos :)
