I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Striped raphael catfish
Synodontis eupterus
Whiptail plecos (may need to research in planetcatfish.com for options)

I don't want to rain on your parade, but you're keeping four rainbow sharks in a 75?? You might run into some problems with that as they mature. Thay can be very territorial and combative with each other. You might have already seen it, but I'm linking their profile for you.

Rainbow Shark (Epalzeorhynchos frenatus) Profile

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
