No, no. That's okay, since I can't seem to find many places that carry the other plecos mentioned. The brittlenose seems to be more commonly available. Thanks!

I wasn't keen on the hatchet fish, but I do love the gouramis and the cories/loaches would be good.

Thanks!

Glad to hear! There's plenty of other cool top-dwellers as well, that was just a suggestion. Halfbeaks are another strangely shaped top dweller. You could also have a *female* betta.

It's decided!!

I'm getting three kuhli loaches (they are sooo cute!) and a couple gouramis for my tank. I'm also getting a power-head, to provide more oxygen and current.

I also added my McFarlane's dragons last night. Will post pictures this weekend!

Kuhlis really do best in groups of 6+, so I'd suggest adding a few more. In smaller groups they tend to hide so much that you'll never see them.

Kuhli

Well, I HAD four, but now I have three.

Not many pet stores in my area have them, and the one that does only offers a 48 hour warranty AND I have to have my water checked.

So, needless to say, I'm not buying fish from them anymore. I will get more Kuhli's as soon as I find a good pet store.

^_^

I'd recommend looking around online for your local aquarium society website. A lot of them have reviews of local fish stores where you can find the best one.
