    I think the 306 would be fine as long as the tank is lightly to moderately stocked. Even so, I second the idea that two filters are better than one. If you up the stock, you deff need a second...

    Oh, and:
    1. Don't dose ammo if you have live fish in the tank. The fish waste keeps the cycle going.
    2. If your pwc water is better (fewer or hopefully no ammo or nitrites), do big pwcs if and...

    Always new. To me it's a risk/reward equation. A few hundred buck extra for a new tank vs. the potential I'll be shot, stabbed, or tortured if a used tank leaks.

    I'd also go with more cardinals. IMHO, there isn't anything better in FW fish keeping than a large school of cardinals or neons.

    You can very easily change your pH without any risk to your fish. I would not keep neons in pH that's that high. Peat filtering will do it slowly (and you want to go slow), but you will have to...

    Agree with Lady Hobbs. Neons act more naturally and are consequently more interesting in large schools. 15 would be very nice in a 29g.

    If it were me, I'd start moving toward a two species tank.
