A 29g tank isn't gonna hold a trigger for very long. Also, unless you are adding the hermits as a snack, I would skip them. Be sure to feed him some hard shelled shrimp or clams to help keep it's teeth in shape.

We are assuming the tank has cycled? I agree the Trigger will be too big for the tank... Trade him in for something smaller and more community oriented if you want other fish or inverts.

You say a trigger and some other fish? How many other fish? Three weeks is awfully soon to have more than one fish isn't it? Has it been set up for three weeks or fully cycled for three weeks?

Well now I am confused, because just yesterday you said the tank was 6 months old, not 3 weeks.
