Stocking Fish

What are some good schooling fish in a 29 gallon tank, and is SeaChem prime a good conditioner for water changes?

Yes prime is about as good as you can get. It neutralizes ammonia too. I've haven't used it because I haven't ran out of my dechlorinator I was given, but it's on my list to try when what I have runs out. Others say it lasts a lot longer than most dechlorinators because it takes so little. Fish wise any type of tetra. I know many people aren't fond of danios, but I have a school
Of 5 giant danios and they are awesome. They ate very very active and honestly go all over the tank, they definitely liven one up for sure! I think a nice school of long finned black skirt or phantom tetras would look good... I just love fish with flowy fins I've seen pictures of long finned danios and they are pretty I think. Also any type of Cory (that would help in the clean up crew department and bottom dwellers!) schools... Corys are a favorite here what other fish are you planning on having?

Thanks for all the input. Would an African butterfly fish work with a school of tetras, if so would I be able to have an African butterfly fish a school of tetras and a school of Cory's?

When adding water conditioner do I add enough for the amount of water I am replacing or for the amount of the whole tank?

It depends on if you use a water changer like a python or do it by buckets. If you do it by buckets and you how many gallons your bucket holds then you can dose by the bucket. If your using a python or are unsure of how many gallons your bucket holds dose the entire volume of the tank.

Mrs.h2012 has it right. Is this your first tank? Here's a guide on general aquarium maintenance and cycling if you haven't seen it yet: Guide to Starting a Freshwater Aquarium - Aquarium Advice
