Stocking Question

My 29 finish cycling and now I have:

36 gallon planted:
2 angels
5 red eyed tetras
1 columbian tetra
1 white skirt tetra
1 black molly
1 pearl gourami
1 feather-finned upside down cat

29 gallon planted
2 angels

I am planning to get 10 harlequin rasboras and two bristle noses for the 29, and two bristle noses for the 36.

I was wondering what you folks think?

Awesome choice, in my opinion. I love my Harleqins. I think those and 2 angelfish would be fine in your 29 gallon. Don't forget pics.

Personally, I'd put all the angels in the 36 until a pair formed, then use the 29 for a breeding tank.

We've been through this before. One word...Apistos. I'll check back later.

I agree with toddnbecka, i've got 8 young ones in my 40USG will get rid of the extra's once a pair is formed

I'd also be tempted to up the number of red eye's...

Well the angels are over a year old. I moved two of them who seemed inseperable. The two I left behind are also inseperable so there is an excellent chance of there being at least one pair. The 36 was turning into a war zone.

Bill the apistos are still in the running. Just playing with ideas.

Chrism, I probably will do that. I wish I could find more of the columbians, he is a really pretty fish. Pale blue with red fins.

Here is a picture of the 29:
