I would recommend Angelfish, whenever and wherever I can. Angelfish are beautiful and can get up to 10 inches in "height." Amazing fish, they are!
Im definitely considering angelfish, they are SO pretty. Id want 2 but im a bit worried with aggression issues in case they dont turn out to be a spawning pair. Heard some nasty things about them when they get older.
Right now my options are:
1 King betta/1 small school of something or
2 Angelfish or
2 Chiclids (maybe 3) or
2 Ryukin goldfish
LOVE the ryukins though.
The little fatties are so adorable XD
29 gallon is right about min. for a parrot fish. I grew up with these guys (as did my mom) and they are FUN, my sister had one, Casanova, who she taught to eat from peoples hands, he loved EVERYONE, I had one named Duncan, he would hide from anyone BUT me (they are extremelly smart and each have their own personality) like bettas, some can be with other fsh, some cant, though from myexperiance, most do not mind a few extra fish, but make sure NO aggressive fish as most parrots are easily picked on :)
Looked up parrot fish and im not partial to them unfortunately D: The body shape is a little weird for me, they sound pretty neat though! c:

I could imagine this could easily be done in a 29 gallon tank. Though maybe a smaller species of corydoras would be recommended if the tank is tall rather than wide.
Ive heard a lot of good things about rams, Ill have to look into them more ^^
