is your tank just cycled, or had it been sitting for a while? if its new get some livebearers like guppies, swordtails, or platys. if it's an old setup tank then you can add lots of things. you could have a small community tank, or a setup for a small predator like a rapheal/pictus cat or make a peacful tank of cory cats. the possibilities are endless. just stay away from things that get big, a 29 gallon tank can get cramped real fast.

Do you have any fish in mind? There are many freshwater fish that can be comfortably housed in a 29 gallon. My suggestion would be a school of Tetras or Rasboras, a group of Corydoras, and a centerpiece fish such as a Dwarf Gourami or Ram. A nice sized group of Dwarf Puffers would also work as well as some Shelldwellers.

neon rainbows are great centerpieces. rummynose tetras and neon would do well to. there are some nice looking barbs to, but youd need some more agressive tankmates or none at all
