So... im only a week or so away from beginning to cycle my 110 gallon tall tank. I have settled on the following
3 green severums
3 gold severums
1 common pleco
2 blue gourami
and for right now thats it. I was GOING to originally get a red tail black shark to patrol the bottom, that or a rainbow shark but then I got thinking, I dont want to jump right into VHO lights due to the price, which would leave the bottom of my tank not a ton of light. which lead me to yoyo loaches which ive read prefer subdued lighting.
how would 4 or 5 yoyo loaches enjoy the bottom of my 110? its a good 48" x 24" surface area for the bottom of the tank. would they....
A) do well considering I know alot of loaches like a strong current, and I wont have much of one at all (i might add a powerhead just for the bottom of the tank later)
B) be able to defend themselves from the severums and gouramis should they try to bully them
C) do ok with natural soft gravel (not sharp at all)
D) get along with a RTBS or Rainbow Shark? (not necessary, just curious)
