I just purchased a new 29 gal tank

Well I'm new at this forum stuff and fish tank stuff. So bare with me. I just got a new 29 gal tank it has a bio wheel filter, led lights that goes from white light to blue. It has a heater. I have it full of water that I treated and the pump is going. That's it nothing eles is in the tank. Water temp is 74deg f.

My plan was to do a couple of Oscars but After reading that sounds like a bad idea. Do you guys have any suggestions for fish plants ect... I would like some colorful fish and some plants. Any help would be awesome. Thx

a lot of community fish like tetras, gouramis, guppies and platies are colorful and love to be in groups and the types of plants i would recommend would depend on the type of light you currently have

LED lighting system produces shimmering light to mimic the underwater effect of sunlight
That's all I know about the lighting.

60mW sounds way too weak for a 29g planted tank, i would suggest buying a stronger light

You will also need to cycle the tank before putting fish in, search the forums for fish less cycle.
