Hey all

So I was just wondering what type of sweet fish would look good in mi 29 gallon tank? Can you please give me the species and any experience you would like to share with me.

Thanks in advance

DT

Welcome to AA.

Check this link for 5 pages of fish that would do well in 30 gallons or less.

Personally, I have a pair of clownfish and did have an algae blenny in my tank. I would only add maybe one more small fish, that that would have been it.

I think the following could probably go in a 29 gallon, obviously you should not get them all (maybe like 3 total?) and you would also have to consider compatibility, etc...

Clownfish
Jawfish
Cardinalfish
Royal gramma
Chromis
Bicolor Pseudochromis
Fridmani Pseudochromis
6 line wrasse
Longnose hawkfish

*Maybe* even a Coral Beauty Angelfish or Flame Angelfish.

Good luck with your tank!

The first fish that I purchased for my 40 gallon tank was the Black and White Clownfish, and he is the hardiest, most affectionate, fish I've ever owned. He has great personality and eats anything that I'll feed him. Other good choices would be Chromis, they too are very hardy and eat just bout anything. Look amazing when schooling together.

Live Aquaria Is a great place to research your choices. DT has a great link too! Your current choises are great as well.
You are not planning on cycling your tank with live animals, right?

Personally, I do not like seeing Centropyge sp. in anything under a 40g, except perhaps the smallest of pygmies (flamebacks, etc). Here's a Great Barrier Reef theme:

x1 Pair: Amphiprion akindynos (Akindynos Clownfish)
x1: Assessor macneilli (Blue Assessor)
x2: Gobiodon okinawae (Yellow Clown Goby)
