Looking for fish that aren't very active

I have a pleco and lacy catfish so far and they are great: stay in the cave most of the time, & I'm getting an african butterfly fish later in the week. So anything that is inactive or doesn't move a lot of the time I would love to hear about. Thanks!

Looking for inactive fish

Or at least ones that aren't active most of the time.

May I ask why you want 'inactive' fish?

Hatchetfish would be perfect. Ghost knife an option. Make sure you have the tank size and water chemistry to accomodate....

A lot of us wanted active fish and you want inactive fish? I have to admit it seemed strange you prefer lazy fish.

BGK's aren't exactly that inactive. I can however classify the Platydoras costatus as one of them.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

Hatchetfish definitely won't work with an ABF. *Munch* Yeah, no more top dwellers for this tank. Perhaps a *truly* freshwater goby?
