Hey guys. So I'm now cycled and ready to stock my tank. I have a 29 gallon. I want a variety of fish that go well in a community. I'd also like some Corys. Let me know what I can stock with and how many of each fish...just need a little bit of help!! Thanks!

Wow...that is a good mixture. I like corys. I've heard good things about them. What about throwing some loaches in there. I have a sand bed, I'd like to add some of them so they can mix the bed up a little bit.

well that would be your lot if you wont be able to put clown loaches in as they can grow up to 12 inches you could put a kuhli in i guess!

I want loaches too but have tank size issues. There are two smaller kinds of loaches, dwarf chain and Zebra. I have no idea how hard they are to find but the dwarfs are very cute and only grow to 2.5 inches and the Zebra to 4 inches.

Loaches are probably one of the first things I'm going to add. I just did my big water change today (about 90% lol). I'm going to give it a couple days for the temperature to come down and for all the dust to settle, then add fish. I definitely want some Cardinals...and this type of tetra, but I forget what they're called.

I think I could go with that. The other tetras are called glowlight tetras!! I really like them!

3 yoyo loaches, 6 tiger barbs, and 6-7 bleeding heart tetras, I thinnk that would be right at capacity too. You'd probably break the inch per gallon rule, but the fish all take up different areas of the tank. Tiger barbs just make everything exciting, and the bleeding hearts are quick enough so that the barbs wont waste their time, they'll be busy with each other anyway
