Plant Gallon

How many fish in a 29 gal long?

I have a planted 29 gallon long aquarium. It has adaquate filtration, heating, and lighting. I am planning on stocking it slowly. It has be cycled. Why I wanna know is how many fish can be placed in it? Here is a list of the fish I hope to keep.

5 black skirt tetra
8 neon tetra
5 cory catfish
1 female molly (already have)
1 pearl gourami

20 fish total

I have had several people try and tell me that black skirts are fin nippers but I personally have not had any troubles with them in the past.

I personally do not believe in the 1 inch per gallon rule, so please, don't tell me to add up the inches.

Thanks!

Unless yours is a custom tank, 29 gallons don't come in "long". The 29 gallon is 30" long. Unless corrected, I'll assume that's what we're working with.

-All Tetras need to be kept in groups of 6 minimum.
-All Corys need to be kept in groups of 6 minimum.
-The Tetras are more active than the Gourami would prefer. The Neons may be eaten by a full grown Pearl Gourami.
-Mollies should be in groups of 3+, and some are nippy, especially to long finned/slow moving fish like Gouramis.

All of those fish together overstock you just a bit.
Were it my tank, I'd swap the Pearl Gourami for a Dwarf variety, or a Betta.

What is this? Great deals on Plant Gallon-related items? You bet!
