Dwarf puffer fish look interesting and the glass catfish are so neat. What other cichlid could pairs could I keep in here?
GH at 75 will be ppm (parts per million), so that equates to 4 dGH which is very soft. You will want soft water fish, which includes most of the characins, cyprinids, catfish, dwarf cichlids, anabantids, and so forth. Avoid livebearers and rift lake cichlids.
Cichlids are not easy in small tanks, but in a 24-inch you could have one dwarf species. Some of the Apistogramma species would work, we only have one in our profiles. The species in Dicrossus would be fine too, there are two in the profiles. [Profiles are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page].
If the name is the same in posts, it shades, and you can click it to see that profile, as the two fish you mentioned. Have a read; they have some very specific needs.
