The starting point for ANY discussion about stocking a tank is to describe your source water's pH and hardness, (GH/KH).
From there, you'll know what fish will thrive in that water.
Then we look at the size of the tank, which is another limiting factor.

Rather than '29 gallon', (which I'll assume to be US Gallons ;) ), the dimensions of the tank are more important.

In the meantime, ignore any and all advice, babbling on about 1" of fish per gallon of water and, instead check out Aqadvisor, which uses a slightly more useful algorithm and takes into account compatibility issues.

This is my dream 29 gallon tank stocking:

3 angelfish.

1 brislenose pleco.

10 neon tetras.

5 corydoras.

3 kuhli loaches.

Water parameters for them: ph: 7-8. Temp: 75-82 degrees farenhight. Ammonia: 0, nitrite: 0. Water hardness: low-moderate.

Only 2 Angels in a 29 Gallon, and that's tight.
Neons will make nice snacks for the aforementioned.
With only 3 kuhli loach, you'll never see them. They need to be in bigger groups to be happy.
