One of my main concerns is if the Bolivians and the German blues will fight, should I do one German and one Bolivian, I think that sounds nice
You should chat with your uncle more about his experiences and how he introduced the fish, as well. He can probably give you some great insight into what has worked and what hasn't.

Yup found it, nice gold gouramis!
Ok, since you seem to have a bit of experience with rams, I think I'm adding one German blue ram and one Bolivian ram, can I go ahead and add my Bolivian,
Do you think that two German blues and two Bolivians will fight in my 29 gallon?

If you end up getting one of each get one male and one female or both females. I couldn't keep two male rams from fighting in a 75 gallon heavily planted tank. River cats in her 220 gallon 100% planted tank only has two pairs and she still have squabbles between the two. There's just not enough space for two males to stake out territories in a 29

I dont know about 2 bolivian rams and 2 GBRs. But if you insist on this, I would put them in at the same time so they dont have any established territories yet. I would also try to get all females if possible. They seam to be less aggressive.

Yea that sounds good, but I think corys like bigger groups. Are you going to get a gourami?

Cool!
Next week I'm getting three more neon tetras to make my neon tetra group of 8 and 2 honey gouramis
Then I'll probably add my 5 red eye tetras and add some driftwood
Then in two weeks I'll be adding my German blue ram and my Bolivian ram
Then in three weeks I'll be adding my otocinclus

Yup, I'll probably just finish the fish before the rams and otos, and when I buy the other fish, I'll buy plants and decor

Wait so you're already over your new angelfish? What are you going to do with him?

The angelfish passed off I really liked him, he got stuck to the filter overnight

You could put a sponge over the filter intake to prevent anything like that from happening again.

? How do you do that? Doesn't it reduce the filtration?
