    Hi! As you might see on my profile, I have a new 29 gallon tank. I originally wanted an angelfish, but I read about how big they grow and just don't want to put one in such a small tank. I saw the DGs at my LFS the other day and absolutely loved them! How is this stocking?

    x1 Dwarf Gourami
    x5 Guppies
    x10 Neons
    x2 GBRs

    I put it into aqadvisor and cane out with 83% stocked.

    One more question. In what order would you add the fish? Should I add the DG last? What about the GBRs?

    GBRs will want to be at 82 which is a bit too warm for your gourami and way too warm for the neons.

    What about cardinal tetras? I know that those can handle a warmer tank. I thought that DG are fine with higher temperatures as well. I read that they are fine with lower 80's

    Cardinal tetras will work well but the DG won't be fine long term, though it'll certainly be able to tolerate it.

    Do you have any suggestions for centerpiece fish then? Bettas? Angelfish?

    Certainly German rams are centerpiece fish? A male betta would work fine, though.
