29 gallon stock idea

I have a 29 gallon aquarium, Eheim 2215 filter, and picture of aquarium below. Would 8 ghost catfish and 5 halfbeaks be okay in this aquarium?

Does anyone have experience with either of these fish?

Great aquascape. If your heart is set on particular fish, then I say go for it. I think your stock list would fit this tank just fine. I've only ever kept halfbeaks. They were cool, but I recall one or two banging their beaks against the glass and bending them.

However, when I look at this tank, I think it would be best served by a large number of small, mid-level schooling fish and then just a few bottom and top dwellers for accents. But go with your gut.
