    Thumbs up Small Tank=Small Fish

    1 Not allowed!
    My 29 gallon. Rasbora, neons and cherry shrimp.

    No Oscars, herds of angelfish, schools of bala sharks, schools of clown loaches. No Jack Dempsey's, Arowanas or flocks of comet goldfish. No Pleco's.

    Stock per size tank you have and the full growth of what you fish will be, not what they are when purchased. There are lots of nice little fish for tanks this size. Just use common sense and you'll have a nice little tank that's stocked sensibility.

    Good Luck.

    I think it is funny that a 29 gallon tank is considered small. That is the tank I have and I am keeping everything small also but to a beginner i would see how 30 gallons would be "big".

    That's the whole point. It isn't a big tank. I'd rather have your 30 gallon than my 29 gallon. The difference in that 6" in length makes a big difference.

    Or a 10 inch oscar in a 10 gallon tank. No different then a 3 ft arowana in a 150 gallon.

    I rethought my analogy. The oscar is definetly doable without toungue in cheek,that is IF a 3 ft arowana is doable in a 150 gal. The oscar has 10 gallons available per pound [maybe more if skinny] the arowana has 10 gallons available as well if its about 15 lbs. Hmhh,I have an empty 10 gallon and have always want an oscar
