    Hey guys, I'm in the process of figuring out how I want to stock my 40 gallon breeder. As of right now I'm considering a harem of badis with one male, a schooling fish of some sort (probably a type of tetra) and a nice L-number pleco. Does anyone know of any specific L-number that would fit into this setup? Also, my substrate will more than likely be primarily white pool filter sand.

    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.

    I would go to planetcatfish and input search parameters using the following bolded data from http://fish.mongabay.com/biotope.htm . Pay attention to the temperature since some of the more popular plecos like higher temperatures (high 70s and low 80s).

    ++++++++++++++++++++
    Indian/Burmese River
    ++++++++++++++++++++

    Despite India's tremendous population, there are still habitats for tropical fish species.
    Neighboring Burma (Myanmar) shares many of India's interesting species.

    ECOSYSTEMS:
    Brahmaputra River, Cavally River, Ganges, Indus, Krishna River, Chilka Lake, Chittar River, Godavari, Irrawaddy

    WATER:
    pH: 7.0-7.7, 6-12 dH, 70-75 F (21-24 C)

    TANK:
    The tank should have bright lighting, fine gravel or sand, and heavy planting.
    Rocks can be used for shelter and hiding places.

    PLANTS:
    Rotala, Ceratopteris, Aponogeton, Eleocharis, Blyxa

    FISH:
    Danios, Rosy Barbs, Colisa, Spiny eels, Climbing perches, Badis, Loaches, Gyrinocheilus, Chaca and Glass catfish.

    Hey,

    Just really quick one. When i use to keep the Basis Badis I found that darker substrate worked better for them.
