    What is a "dwarf graw" I put that into google and nothing came up.

    second: what kind of pleco

    third-rainbow sharks should be in a least a 55gallon tank (4ft long minimum) they are super active swimmers and aggressive.

    do you have a reading on ammonia?

    how did you cycle your 29gallon tank?

    based on those #'s, (no nitrites or nitrates) I'm leaning towards your tank is not cycled and nitrates that high are dangerous to fish.

    So for starters while we get the above info:

    do a 50% water change, fill back up, then do another 50% water change.
    This will lower your nitrate levels to safe levels.
