    I like the stock but i em pretty sure it will not work out in the long run and you are looking at a tank in the 100s easy. I would also say it is an aggressive tank and the bns dont belong anywhere in there.

    The tanks been running for a while now!.. with little problems.
    Smaller fish cant be kept in there, as there are plenty of other that will bite if it fits in there mouth!

    Im just looking for suggestions on fish that i can add?..

    Awesome,
    They are all fairly small fish... no one is bitter than about 5cm.
    I the past if the fish become too big and pick on other I have sold them on.
    Had an awesome pictus catfish that i had to get rid of!!
