29gal tank questions

Ok I have a 29gal tank in my bedroom and was going to put a few fish into it and have it in the bedroom. Like a few Perculas.. But it didnt seem big enough to me so I went and bought a 55gal... What should I do with the 29gal.. I was thinking like a seahorse tank or some sort of species tank... What would be totally awesome for the tank.. Its got just regular 20watt NO flouresent bulb and 11lbs of LR.. I need sugestions.. Its kinda hard cause I am gonna be sleeping with these things in my bedroom. As many opinions as possible please..


TIA,
JAmes

Would that lighting work.. I really dont want to have to upgrade that light in there.. I mean I look at my 55gal with the reef lighting and it lights my entire livingroom.. no need for lights in that room.. LOL and the bedroom 29gal lights seem extremely week for any sort of corals..


TIA,
James

They get up to 9 inches I believe, but would fair quite nicely for a good while if bought young... They are quite messy eaters so you would want to have good filtration on it...

You could use it as a sump/refugium for the 55.

I too was thinking about seahorses for my wife and someone on this site referred me to www.seahorses.org. Anyway they say to keep a pair of seahorses in every 8 gallons and 10 gallon is as big as you want to go. So according to them a 29 might be to big.

Hope this helps.
