Rethinking original plan...

So my plan was to have 8 Pristellas, 8 Von Rios, 6 cories and 1 Bolivian Ram in my 29 gallon. I have the BR, cories and Pristellas. Instead of the Von Rios, would it be possible to add either a Pearl or Honey Gourami?

Yes to the honey, but not the pearl.

Because the pearl gets too big? Or is not as peaceful?

Any other suggestions for a different bigger-than-a-tetra fish?

I'm not sure if a kribensis can work in a 29 gallon.




Have you thought about a molly also?

Too big. 5 inches.

They can, but not with a BR in this small of a tank.

How about a banded or thick-lipped gourami?

I had a honey gouramI and BR together in a 29 gal for several years - no problems

Good to know. I think I'll get the honey gourami.

If you are wanting something slightly bigger (as the honey gouramI stays pretty small) you could get a sunset thicklipped gourami. I have 2 with my BR and all three hang out together. They have some similar colors as the honey. Also very peaceful

Lol sorry. You may just want to check your LFS. Thicklipped's in general are not all that common. My LFS has a habit of carrying the not so common fish (thicklipped, peacock gudgeons, bichir, all the rare cichlids) but then not carrying a lot of common fish (bolivian ram, rasboras, etc) so I was able to luck up on some. So make sure your LFS keeps what you are planning or at least you have a way of getting them

I'll check it out. Is a little current ok for them? The side of the tank opposite the filter still gets movement. It's not making waves or anything...I already purchased some frogbit for cover too.
