    You can use pantyhose or stockings on your intakes to prevent your fry or juveniles from going into the filters. Also, I would recommend placing your heater more centrally and toward the substrate in a larger tank like yours to disappate the heat more evenly.

    If you want bottom dwelling fish and/or live plants, you might want to rethink the crayfish. From what I have read, they can be aggressive and sometimes will eat plants

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Plan is to put a few plants in and see how he takes to them, I keep him well fed.

    As for bottom feeders I will keep some discretion. His only friends on the bottom are ghost shrimp and he has not messed with them at all, even when he was in a 20 gallon with them.

    I know the heater needs to be centralized, but for the time being it is not enough heater for the tank. My thinking was to put it by the intake of the filter to heat the water going into the filter, then it would get circulated by the power head when it dumps back in. Currently with the thermometer on the opposite side of the tank I can keep a consistent 77*.

    Alright, so now that we have deemed my filtration as crap, my heater in the wrong place, and my crayfish as a nuisance. ROFL Anymore stocking ideas?

    If you get cannisters you can get inline heaters.

    Well once you get yourself all lined out LOL, I would get a large school of Bloodfin Tetras. They are a schooling, active fish that would keep up with your roselines but not get to big to take away from the roselines being the centerpeice of your tank; if thats what your going for.
    Have fun.

    That's good to know.

    Maybe emerald cories as they are bigger than average cories and would be the least likely for the crayfish to recognize as potential food should his behavor ever change. As you stated, you'll have to keep a close eye on things

    I might just stick with the crayfish and the shrimp for bottom dwellers for now. Possibly add a few different types of shrimp to color up the floor. I like the Bloodfin and, also like rummy nose's but have not been able to find any in my LFS's....
