questions from a beginner

Hey everyone, im new to the forum and had a couple question.

First of all i have a 29 gallon tall tank with a heater and fluorescent light and all that. Right now i have a topfin 30 filter system and would eventually like to have sand and some low light plants.


question #1

Is this tank big enough for angelfish? i would like to have 2 with a few small cory cats and maybe some swordtails.

question #2

would it be a good idea to upgrade the filter to something designed for a 40 gallon tank. is topfin a good brand?

question #3

what are some good low light plants that my angels will like.


im familiar with cycling and general tank care just had a few specifics.

thanks for any info! ^^

For the filter I would suggest an AC50(aquaclear).

For plants stick with crypts,java fers, moss, anubia with the stock light
