Good suggestions but before this stocking suggestion confuses you.

I would first pick the main fish. The Dwarf Gourami or the Ram Cichlid would both be great options as suggested by Bomb

Dwarf Gouramis are known to have a disease from inbreeding to their a little riskier but are beautiful fish.

The Bolivian Ram is the cichlid I would suggest you start with as it tolerates better temperature ranges and water parameters. I would not suggest the German Blue Ram.

If you choose any of the tetras. I would suggest getting one species and having at least 8 of one of those species. THis will keep them happy because they like to school.

That Marineland one is a higher quality one as you can see. It's more expensive and comes with better stuff.

If that is a full kit that comes with lights, filter, heater I would get it. go for the 29 or 37 gallon one. You'll be happy you did.

IF you can't find a good deal on there check out Craigslist. Best deals you can possibly find anywhere...no joke.

Good stuff.

No that was exactly what I was talking about.

The Marineland® BioWheel® LED Aquarium Kit IS the better quality one (step up from the basic ones)

Good buy.

The Top Fin, AquaClear, and Tetra starter kits are lower quality.

Only the Top Fin Deluxe Kits are about the same. It's rare to find those on sale. They come with a nice heater, filter and good spectrum lights.

Only problem is the LED lights, if you want any serious plants.
