LOL Johnny. That is a loaded question.

I have 5 in my 90g. They like the middle of the tank mainly but will go down lower to swim amongst the plants and pick at the substrate like most barbs do. Keep in my they will get to 5-6" long so its nice to have some room for them to move. 5 might be the top end amount you would want in a 55g but that is as much of a personal choice. I tend to keep my tank understocked a bit on purpose to everyone has room to enjoy themselves.

New stocking decision made. I bought 9 Zebra Danios today and the LFS also had some decent looking cherry red shrimp so I added 9 of them to go with my Amano Shrimp of which I had 5 but I only see 4 of maximum. I am hoping the red's get up on the plants and work on the brush/staghorn alage that has been growing on them some. The amano's seem to get enough to eat from the dw, top of cave and substrate so rarely go into the plants. Dang spoiled amanos:) The cherry red's had a nice colour and decent size to them in the store and washed out in the shipping bag home. A few are already starting to show a hint of pink in them so hopefully they all become comfortable and colour back up pretty quick.

Here is a short video of some of the kuhli's and the bn pleco competing for an algae wafer. I tried uploading the video to my log but for some reason it doesn't load. Obviously I am doing something wrong on the upload:) Any suggestions on how to do that would be helpful

I have no idea how you upload a video (anyone know?) but that is a great clip. You got lucky with your kuhlis because yours aren't shy at all! Really nice looking BN too.

Oh mine are pretty shy as a rule but for some reason when they are in behind the java and underneath that red ludwigia they feel more comfortable. And when I drop an algae wafer in that area for them a few times a week all 5 come out and go nuts in the area feeding :)

And I got the video uploaded now. It seems it had not been up on youtube long enough to "be found" by our uploader here. In other words, user error, as per usual heheh
