Hi all, I currently have a new 29g tank that is just starting to cycle so I am trying to decide what to stock it with. I am new to cichlids and really like the looks of Firemouths, so I am currently thinking of getting a single Firemouth and stocking around it. Here is a list of a few fish that I like for possible tankmates, and would like your opinions on whether you think they would be compatible in any combination.

2-6 Spotted or albino Cory catfish
1-3 Dwarf Gourami(s) or other Gourami(s)
5-6 Tiger Barbs (or other similar fish)

I have read that the Firemouth should be fine with the Cory's and Tiger barbs, but what about the Gourami(s)? If all of these would work together would I be overstocked keeping them all on the low side of numbers?

Thanks for your input and opinions.

I think that may be a cool little tank! I would stick with a Firemouth, 6 Tiger Barbs, and some cories if you like. I would skip the Gourami, but thats just me.
