    Quote: "Never get a "cleaner fish" to eat scraps of food from the bottom. The amount of bioload added to the tank is much greater than simply picking up the gravel vac and removing the food."

    You know - that makes good sense. I just happen to like plecos and corys but, you're right. I don't necessarily need them. thanks

    Most parrots only reach 6". They would be fine with two severum, IMO.

    I'm with hobbs on this one, a 90G is like nowhere near stocked with only two severums. It would be a sad looking tank!

    Largest parrot I've seen was 8 inches, was in my lfs but it was from a chinese dudes tank, the fish was at least 8yr old and really impressive looking.

    If you want a pleco, get a pleco. I gravel vac with everywater change and do 80% if you had double-triple filtration as long as you gravel vac'd you won't have any issues.

    What's your filtration?
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    Thanks all. I'm leaning toward 2 severums or 2 firemouths and 3 blood parrots. My local Fish guy will work with me if I need to do some rehoming. I'm also intrigued by the gold algae eater I saw the other day but must do more research before I make that decision. any algae control fish can come later after I see how my set-up functions. Will forego any cats as I am afraid I will over feed out of concern for them getting enough to eat as they compete with the big guys. :o(

    Scottish fish you asked about filtration: 1200 cascade canister. Also, at the advice of the LFS (one man operation has been raising fish for years) decided to supplement with a UGF with 2 Marineland maxi-jet 400 water pumps. I'm hoping this combo will give me plenty of bio and chemical filtration plus plenty of water flow so I can keep my W/C to once weekly 50% - 80%. I know = not many on this forum are fans of UGF but I want to give it a try = again as a supplement to the canister instead of HOB's. We'll see how it goes and I'll let you know.

    Providing I don't change my mind yet again (it's been a challenge because there are so many fish I'd love to have) I think I'm set - unless anyone sees any room for a school of tetra, just for variety. I have 8 nice sized Colombians in my 30 gal that I love but have been toying with moving them to the 90 once it's set up to make room for a single blue angel in my 30? How bad of an idea is that???

    Hope to finally start my fishless cycle toward the end of Aug. Finally.
