clowns, chromis, gobies, but I would saty away from damsels because they tend to be agressive towards other fish.

That `s fine. Only you know that. only reason I bring it up is because sometimes people say I`ll start small and if I like it I`ll upgrade. But when thet start small they have in mind the fish for the big tank. But I understand.

I like gobies and they would do good in a 29.

Clowns, chromis, damsels, some gobies, dwarf fuzzy lions if you have the tank space, some wrasses, some blennies, and other common sw fish you hear of like that.

I really wouldn't worry about telling him about the tank size though. I really don't get it. On other posts people want a 10 gallon, everyone suggests a 29. Well in this case your suggesting abigger tank than a 29 lol. IMHO a 29 is better than a 10 or osmething smaller than that in starting out becuse it saves you the initial 6 month upgrade most poeple go through.
But yes I do get why the bigger tank was brought up and it is a good point.
