Stocking advice

Good afternoon everyone !

Just looking for some stocking suggestions to help complete my tank. My tank is fully cycled and has been for a couple years.

My current set up is a 29 gallon tank with a 50 gallon aquaclear HOB filter. I also had a sponge filter in the tank which I used to help cycle my tank .... I just never took it out.

My current stock is:
1 bristlenose pleco - he is quite large I purchased him in 2013.
6 black neon tetraís
3 rosy barb (should I add two more)

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hello! Thatís a very interesting selection! I love Bristlenose plecos, but it all depends what youíre looking for! It looks to me like youíd want a fish that stands out by itself. Dwarf Gouramis are an excellent choice, idk how the Rosy Bards will like them, Iíve never kept them myself. A Molly, or a few Platies would look great. Great bottom feeders are Corydoras, or Pictus Catfish. Anyways, Iím sure whatever you choose will look great

Thanks for the reply! The dwarf gouramis sounds like a good idea.

Anyone else have any other suggestions ?
