Hi guy's- im new here and need some ideas

So i've never been on a forum before but i'm here to talk fish and diy stuff.
Here in my city theres little to no fish stuff we have one fish store and 3 petco/petsmarts. Right now i'm here to get ideas for a new 29 gallon i just got done fixing from a dumpster dive i did at petsmart.

Hey deelee2013
Hmm my ultimate favorite fish is a ranchu goldfish. But for this tank i dont want goldfish since they produce heavy waste. Im okay with any level of fish i just dont want anything to large or aggressive, since i want a community type tank.

Thats what i was thinking too, but you think it would be fine to add some yellow lab cichlids?

Probably not good to mix mbuna with cories. As the labs grow, a 29 gallon will be cramped, they're better off in a 55.

For a colorful 29g tank, I would go for the following:

Dark substrate to help the fish stand out!

6-10 Neon or Cardinal Tetras (bright blue and red)

6-10 Harlequin rasboras (red and black)

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?
