Would this work? 29gallon aquarium

    Here's my final?(Hopefully) stocking list!:

    5 Zebra Danios
    6 Hatchetfish
    1 Bristlenose pleco OR a small school of Cories? What one?

    Some Questions:

    1) How is the stocking situation?

    2) Overstocked?

    3) Also, any easy plants that could go in this aquarium? I have a "Mondo grass" from when I kept Chinese Red-belly Newts with 3 Zebra Danios.

    4) Any inverts/tank cleaners?

    I think you could go with that stocking. I like to have some bottom dwellers, but that's just me. You don't have enough room for a corry school, but you could probably add a bristle nose pleco to what you've already listed.

    Ok, might look into a bottom dweller/pleco if I have the space then! Thanks for your input!

    snails are nice, mystery snails you have to buy but you can come across tons of different snails if you introduce them through eggs on plants or if they breed in your tank.

    easy plants like java fern, anubias, java moss are really common. With the right lighting, water sprite, anacharis, ludwigia all don't need anything else, while crypts, jungle vals, and swords require a special substrate or root tabs.

    Mystery snails are my favorite aquarium dweller to date. They have so much personality. I have 20 total

    Alright, so, decided that the guppies would go in my 10gal for the breeder tank! I guess that it frees up a little room? Could I do a school of Cories? I found some spotted today at my lfs and I instantly fell in love! Their so cute! Anyways, what would you go with, 1 Albino Bristlenose or a school of Cories?!

    For me it has to be corys, a group of 6 will be fine
