Brackish suggestions for large tank
So, I will be moving my eel and puffer to another tank. It is just safer that way. That also means that the tank they are in will only have 3 archers in it. Full grown microleps, so they are about 6-8". Its a 225G tank, so plenty of space for some medium sized fish.
Kept at low end brackish in between SG 1.0005 and 1.0014.
Nothing can be under 2.5" as the archers have huge mouths, an I want to keep it below 18" when full grown.
So far I am considering-
Rope fish(more than 18" I know but its an exception)
anableps (hard to find around here and very expensive)
Any other mediumish sized brackish fish you know of?Who is "General Failure" and why is he reading my hard drive?

I've always though the columbian catfish are a really cool looking fish and would look great in a large tank. I really don;t know a lot about them, or brackish set-ups for that matter
Either way, I would like to suggest starting a tank journal. I would love to see how this set-up evolves.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Scats! You just keep Scats...honestly some of the coolest brackish fish I have ever kept. Do watch for their spines...they are reportedly mildly venomous. Monos are cool too. All of these fish would do well in your SG...however at adulthood Id probably bump them all up to around 1.016-1.018"Have no fear of perfection- you'll never reach it."

What about a school of monos?
