    My newest aquarium! My current stocking plans are:
    1 Pearl Gourami
    8 Pygmy Cories
    8 Rummynose Tetra
    1 Bristlenose Pleco
    3 Endler Guppies

    The tank is currently cycling. I put the new filter in my old tank to help it along.


    After less than 24hrs up and running changes were made. I was sold a Ribbon plant by Petco and I bought it without any research, woops.

    So I took out 1 and bought 5 more!

    The ribbon plant is now potted and sitting on my windowsill. Might as well get some enjoyment out of it.

    Looks like a good start! Those plants will help cushion those ammonia spikes a little bit.

    Tank looks great, I like it.

    I would suggest you reconsider the pygmy corys...I tried them in my 29G, and they did not do well at all...corys need to surface for gulps of air, and the 29G was just too tall for mine to do so...other mid-sized corys would be fine

    What temp is the tank?

    Wouldn't the floor plan be too small for a school of medium sized cories? My temp is running at 78F

    I keep 6 panda and 3 blackfin corys in my 29G, and they do just fine.

    I love your tank! You did a good scaping job. I really like all the plants intertwined with DW.

    You could do a school of regular sized cories no problem :) Would you reconsider the rummynose tetras? They do not tolerate a high pH. Another member here with a high pH went with bloodfin tetras instead.

    Fyi-I tried panda cories in a deep hex tank (24 inches) and they did not do well with the height. Of course the height vs the length didn't help either for oxygen exchange.

    Could I go from 8 rummynose to 8 bloodfin and 8 pygmies to 6 emeralds without being overstocked?
    Emeralds are my favorite "cory" catfish but I didn't think my tank was big enough for a school of them, I know they are not technically a cory.

    I'm not sure what fish you are referring to.
