No, i am speaking from experience with these fish. Before anyone frowns at me this experience is what changed my fish keeping ways.

Moral of the story...yellow lab cichlids are not good for 29 gallon tanks, and always do research before you buy anything be it coral, plant, or fish.

I agree with the other suggestions for stocking though

4-6 male fancy guppies in any variety of colors

This will give you a good selection of color! Just personal opinion, of course. Once the tank is well established, maybe add some bright red cherry shrimp? Or yellow ones?

Since you're undecided I'd suggest either Googling 'stocking a freshwater 29 gallon tank', or even search this site. Lots of helpful folks here!

Personally I'd go kind of the traditional route: 1 large group of schoolers, some sort of bottom feeder, and a centerpiece fish.

I'd don't remember reading if you mentioned this: are you planning to do live plants?
