Stocking ideas

Good people of the internet

So I just got a 3 ft
90cmx32cmx38cm
29 gallon tank


I want to make this a community tank with one center peice of driftwood with plans in between the wood...
With rock. Caves off to thebside

This is the stocking list that I have in mind..


2 Electric blue rams pair
2-4 angel fish
10tiger barbs
4-6 cherry barbs
6 platies
6 Corry catfish
1 kribensis
1 rainbow shark

I would like advice please..
Be it I went wrong somewhere on I'm mixing fish that I should not be

Much appreciated

That would be way over stocked, mismatched aggression and mismatched temperature requirements.

2 pairs of rams in a 29 gallon is likely not ideal, 1 pair would be better.
Angelfish are too big for a 29 gallon tank, and will pair off and be agressive.
Tiger barbs and Cherry bard are semi-aggressive, but can work without all the cichlids you've mentioned.
Platies will breed, and be potentially harassed by the other fish you've listed.
Cory cats will work.
Kribs are another cichlid...
Rainbow shark is semi aggressive and will outgrow a 29 gallon tank.

Honey Gourami x 1 or 2
Celestial Pearl Danio x 20
pseudomugil paskai x 10 (all males if possible)
Any group of 6 cory cats
Chili Rasbora or Ember tetra x 15

That would be very well stocked, but manageable with 50% water changes, 78 degrees F, and a well cleaned filter / gravel vacuumed tank.

That is what I would personally do.

You can go with some Preacox rainbowfish, 6 - 8 of them, or Skull Creek rainbowfish (try for all male rainbows) as well, with CPD's, ember tetra, cory's and a small Gourami.

Amano shrimp x 10, oto cats x 6.

You could do a pair of rams, cardinal tetra and sterbi corys with the temp set to 82 degrees.

You could do a pair of apistos with ember tetra, dwarf rainbows, cory cats and oto cats.
