    Well, its about midnight..all planted. I envisioned something a bit less chaotic. The worst part was removing the old substrate and cleaning. The water is still a tad cloudy from the sand. I'll take pics tomorrow and try to put a before and after. Tired......gnight.

    Here is my stock list for my tank:

    1 Synodontis catfish (already established)
    3 Red Gold Honey dwarf gourami
    3 Powder blue dwarf gourami
    12 Congo Tetra
    6 Panda Corydoras
    4 Super Khuli Loaches
    6 Super Red Longfin bristlenose plecos
    8 red cherry shrimp
    6 Zebra Nerite snails

    What do you think? My filtration is a Fluval FX6 and an AC 110 along with an AC 50 that I use on the quarantine tank when I need it.

    Shrimp may be eaten by the congos or gouramis, and with only 8, you'd probably never see them in a tank that size, anyway

    That would be ALOT of bioload from those plecos, and I'm not sure if they'd have territory/fighting issues, as well...I'd try for 1 male, 1 female...they might even breed for you

    You could do many more panda corys, I'd start with at least 12

    My thought on the plecos is that I have 3 pleco caves and a fair amount of mopani wood, plus the rocks and plants. There is good circulation and foam covered filters at or near ground level. I do 50% water changes weekly as a routine and good filter maintenance. I thought I would breed them eventually in my dual purpose 20g.

    But, with that said, I had to scrap the live bearer tank idea. The plecos really are the focus and with that bioload, I will be at a good level. My LFS would be more than happy to take a couple off my hands should it come to that.
