I would definitely do the saltwater in the 29 first to see how everything fairs.

By the way, I'm super jelly of you right now lol Although I was nearly this stoked when I got my 33 gallon free from my university because I was complaining to the right people at the right time! Haha

But congrats to you! I wouldn't put any betta's in there though, just thinking about how long it would take them to get to the surface unless it had a rather large footprint. But I would consider Angel fish, smaller cichlids like apistogrammas or rams (my particular fave.) a catfish or two. My favorites were the Synodontis Eupterus Catfish and spotted Raphael Catfish. You could also do some of the larger Gourami's as well!

To decide on my 33 gallon before I even thought about a sorority I had to write out a list of stocking ideas on a word document and switch things around before I could decide lol It took me about 3 months of pure research on compatibility and requirements before I settled on the sorority!

Ohmygod CONGRATS! So far my big one is a 40breeder, but we need a stand before we can set it up. (That's my boyfriend's rules on it anyway, but we seriously don't have anything to sit it on right now nor anyplace to put it)

Whatever you do, SHOW US THE IN-PROGRESS!!

Nice I'd love to have an empty 100 gallon to fill.

You should really know your tap water ph and hardness before you decide on which fish to get.

Go to a great fish store even if you have to drive further than the chain stores and see what catches your eye.

Make a list and then check out the profiles at the top of the main page here to see what best matches your parameters and what they are compatable with.

Good luck!

If you're not familiar with it, I use aqadvisor.com to check my stocking. It doesn't tell you compatability which I think most people hate about it, but it's a great tool to help you and everyone else along as well. It also tells you the recommended water changes per week, I find it very useful!

What a great opportunity!!! Good for you!!!
I would only suggest to REALLY take your time and research as others have suggested. It will be a long-term tank. When I finally move to a house (in not too long) I plan to have a very large long tank which I anticipate will take a good few months to set-up. I am thinking a strict sorority.
