Asian Glass cats prefer soft water, rainbowfish prefer hard (and so, I believe, do upside down cats). Have you considered African Glass Cats (Debauwi cats?)

Maybe not a dealbreaker - I haven't assayed Asian Glass cats this time around yet (and with 11 tanks it will be a couple years before I redo one to see what I can do with them), but I have heard that they are quite delicate (and my prior experience many years ago suggests the same).

Still, caveat emptor and all that.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
