    I recently moved two of my baby angels out of their 29 grow out so that leaves me with and empty, aside from quite a few Diffusas, fully planted 29 gallon. I am racking my mind trying to figure out what I want to put in it but just can't decide, this is where you guys come in. I am already keeping angels, endlers, white clouds, multies, cardinal tetras and neons, columbian tetras, and ember tetras so I would like something other than these in this tank. Now let the suggestions begin :D :D

    Buenos aeries tetras? or maybe some dwarf neon rainbows? Or dwarf SA cichlids?

    Trying to stay away from the tetras but the rainbows are intriguing.

    on turns they turn a neon blue body and bright red fins. They are skittish fish though but beautiful. They LOVE densely planted tanks. Have you looked into smaller loaches?

    Not really that interested in the loaches aside from hillstream but this tank is not suitable for them.

    I have very soft water and already deal with hardening the water in my multie tank and don't wanna really do it for the lake tang dafs. I do like them though.

    Those are beautiful but I wonder if they have the same problems healthwise as other dwarf gouramis?

    can do a mixed community,
    maybe something along the lines of a nice school of rummy nose tetras, some Hi-Fin Serpae Tetras, even Glo-Lite Tetras look amazing against dark green plants.

    Dawn although I am trying to stay away from tetras I do love the Serpaes and miss mine that I lost in a bacterial bloom about 6 months ago. GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I haven't heard either way. I've seen them in person and they're pretty cool little guys.
