Catfish would work as tankmates. And you idea for aquascaping is excellent. A light over the tank wouldn't hurt, nothing bright, and live plants such as floating plants (which would also shade the tank).
Thanks, i appreciate the response, what would you recommend for floating plants, although i don't think ill use any, cause in a true Dark Cave Biotope there would be no plants, and i dont think im going to get cat fish eithier, just the group of my BCT. Using a Red led, or spotlight to add to small but cool effect in lighting. I'm looking for a good canister filter for my setup, any recommendations
