The lights I am not 100% sure, I bought some from PetSmart but not happy with them….

Didn’t know I could put any kind of cats with these guys? Someone told me clown loaches…. I do like how the lighting is not super bright, it brings out the color of all the fish, but there are only two 24” bulbs so there are a lot of dark spots one on each side and in the middle.

The pairs I have that I can tell;
Strawberry’s 1F 1M
OB Peacocks can’t tell yet
Electric blues not sure but maybe 2 M
Venustus looks like 1F 1M
Would not go with clown loaches that prefer softer water, but Synodontis Petricola, which stay around four inches,or larger Synodontis Multipunctatus (around seven inches) would work well in wide range of water, and could hold their own in your tank .

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

Synodontis Multipunctatus would work better over Petricola

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Is there a common name for the Synodontis Multipunctatus. Trying to find specific fish around here can be tricky at times.

Any Neat looking HAPS/Peacocks you can think of that i did not mention, something i should look out for to add?

I think they call them Cuckoo Catfish sometimes. I have 3 in my 100 gallon with cichlids and they are very active and look really cool.

Otopharynx lithobates would be a good addition although any fish slowly and keep an eye for aggression issues.
