I got my 29 gallon put together today and think it turned out good. Just transferred the fish from my 10 gallon along with the filter media. I upgraded my filter to a Fluval 206 and love it so far. Now time to add some more fish. Any recommendations. I have some tetras that I am going to bump up to about 12 of them and some dwarf Cory cats.

Looks really nice but I see some submerged house plants on the left... they still selling them as 'aquatic' plants?
Nice job on the different substrate colors and rocks.

Most of those plants look fake except the 1 in the center, is that right? I like your arrangement, but if that center plant is an anubias it needs to have it's rhizome (where roots & leaves meet in a kind of sideways stem) above the substrate.

I love corys of all sizes. Which dwarf species do you have? there are 3 or 4 readily available. Habrosus are pretty much bottom fish, but pygmaeus are more mid-water swimmers. You could have both!!

What species of tetra do you have? That will help us recommend another compatible species or center piece larger fish.

Lol this just shows how old I am I've never had a fake plant and most I saw were obviously fake. At least it's a Fittonia that can be kept in an aquarium.

I bet I'm older, the loach, lol, lots of fake plants in my long ago past :p. Some looked ok...at the time...Now I belong to a plant club & know better than silk or plastic :D

The fittonia also looks artificial to me, but I might be wrong...any non-aquatic or fake plant looks (ahem) not so good these days.

Yes they are all fake plants. Don’t have time for real plants and fish.

Looks great!

The only thing I can think to add at the moment is corys are going to churn up the way you have your substrate arranged. It will be all mixed up and leveled out.

They are dwarf cory’s. I think I will be fine with them licking up one piece of sand at a time
