My 29 Gallon Planted Journal~56k

I Just purchased this tank and other various items today, along with a Marineland Power Filter 50.

Heres a list of things I still need, advice wanted:
Lighting.
Heater.
Thermometer.
Substrate.


Here is the stand I plan on using. I will check to see if its strong enough to hold the tank.

Heres the tank still in the cardboard packaging

Inside the tank is an air pump with an airstone, and 2 rocks to aquascape with. They are a good place to put plants in.

Don't yell at me for not just researching but does anybody know the dimensions to the tank, and if so any good lights then would be suitable to make it low-tech.

Also I'm trying to plan on the inhabitants of the tank.
1 SAE
6-8 Neon Tetras
6-8 Black neon Tetras
Pair of Rams or Kribs? I was thinking a pair of the main fish that could breed together as well.

Thanks for helping!

For inhabitants of the tank I was also thinking maybe I could do RCS and possibly breed them.
If I did shrimp would I be able to put any fish in there? Thanks.

A 29g is 30"x12"x18". For low light, I'd try to get around 40-50 watts over the tank.

The Kribs or Rams will each shrimp. I wouldn't put it past the Tetras to eat babies and the SAE as well. I'm not sure about the tetras though. They could possibly be safe with shrimp but I wouldn't trust dwarf Cichlids or the SAE.

Ok I think I've decided on a Pair of Kribs, no shrimp, and Black/normal neon tetras.
How many tetras will be ok with the kribs safely?

I have a 37 gallon, which is the same tank but just 4" taller. I am using coralife 2x18 normal output t5 lights and things are growing. Just a suggestion for your lights.

I'd go with 8 of each type of tetra.
