Stocking my 29 gallon!

    Hey!!! I am new to this, but I have properly cycled my tank and I am finally ready to stock it! I am thinking of doing this:
    6 Fancy guppies
    8 Cardinal tetras
    3-4 Cories
    And finally an angel

    I am just hoping that this isn't too much, and I would also like to know what type of shrimp I could possibly put in here as well. I would like them to help out with the maintenance :D

    BTW I have caves and live plants in there as well if that makes a difference (It's also a long tank)
    Thank you in advance!

    Welcome to Fishlore!
    Your cories will need to be in a school of at least 6 of their own species. An angelfish will not work in that small of a tank, they can get up to 6" long and tall. Instead, I would recommend a German Blue Ram or a Kribensis.

    +1 ^ or a honey gourami, that would work.

    I'm going to add that the kribensis is the fish in my avatar. She's got a nice pink spot on the belly.

    The Kribensis looks really cool, Got any other suggestions for a centerpiece? Also is it already too crowded for shrimp?

    Honey gourami, banded gourami, dwarf gourami, kribensis, bolivian ram, german blue ram, any of the Apisto cichlids

    you're welcome. Just keep in mind that the rams like warmer temperatures, so you'll need warmer temperature cories also.
