Lol MTS (multiple tank syndrome) hits quick! In the 29 a community with a betta as a centerpiece fish would be easy and pretty. Im a fan of gouramis personally, if you like them they would do well in a 29 gal community tank. The angel would be pushing it IMO. 1 would probably survive but it prolly wouldn't be too happy...

MTS is horrible! I'm struggling here haha!

Yeah, I REALLY want an angel fish badly, but I just don't want to get one to get one, and stick it in a 29 gallon. My next setup will be a 55 gallon so I'll probably add one to that.


I'll have to check out gouramis

Haha tell me about it! B4 I had my 1st tank finished I had 2 more waiting to set up. Now the 2nd one is cycled and waiting for fish and im doing preliminary planing on the 3rd.

A 55 would be much easier to do a community in with a couple angels as centerpiece fish. And as far as the 29 goes when looking up gouramis make sure to pay attention to the adult size. Some like the dwarf and honey gouramis max out around 3 in while others can get over 10. For a 29 id look at the dwarf, pearl or 3 spot varieties. There are several color variations of the dwarf and 3 spot and the pearls are beautiful.

Can the gouramis go with a beta fish? Or is it one or the other?

Definitely one or the other. They both get along fine with smaller fish but can be aggressive toward fish that are close to there size. Male betta + gourami = tank warfare

IF the sucker fish will eat algea wafers, then yes, it might do ok that way. But some types and some individual fish just do not understand the concept of an algea wafer, and they will starve to death sitting right next to one.
