Hows my stocking/can I add more?

Hows my 29 gallon stock? Also, can I add two angels? Should I add any more fish?

29 Gallon
-1 Swordtail
-3 Neons
-1 BN pleco
-1 Cory Catfish
-2 Neon Dwarf Gouramis

I was thinking adding more neons as I think they would need more than 3.

I would not add 2 angels. Most people would consider a 29 fully stocked with 2 angels. I think you could add one, although I would add more neons and corys instead because they are a schooling fish and they aren't going to do well in those current numbers.

Hate to rain on your parade but I wouldn't add two angels to that tank. They might try to kill the neons , plus they grow large and like mentioned will probably fully stock a tank by themselves. I would add neons, Cories and maybe a pearl gourami. The german blue rams could work but they need pristine water quality IME.

You should build your neon school to at least 6, 8 is better. You need to build your cory school (same species) to at least 3, 5 is better.

What is a neon dwarf gourami? I've never heard of that species.

Ok, thanks for the suggestions! Seems like I will add 5 or more neons and maybe a few more corys. I moght just stay away from angels.

This is a neon dwarf gourami. Quite nice fish.
