Your 29 is cycled holding the cichlid already, right ? How big is the filter on the 29 ? Swap EVERYTHING over to the 40 and add 11 gallons of water with conditioner. It'd be like doing a 25% water change. Then you could also check out Craigslist at the same time for other items that may help along the way.

Yes the 29 has been running now for 3 years. Started with neons, common pleco, tiger barbs, and ranbow sharks then changed to where it is today with the cichlid and 1 rosy barb. The 29 gallon filter is a TopFin30. I got the tank as a starter set for Christmas.

Then I see a lot of options with your situation and what's available on the outside.

Lots of people interested in the cichlid ad I posted on Craigslist. Ill post another for the barb once the cichlid is gone.

That's awesome! Sorry I was so harsh before. I just tend to sympathize with fish before people because I'm weird like that and sometimes I act like a jerk to people who don't deserve it. Really glad your fish are getting better homes.

No problem. I have gotten tired of just being able to have 2 fish in a 29 gallon.
