So your tank will look crowded and they don't have much swim space as a result of that. The fish DB actually has internal information that divides each species into B, M and/or T (bottom/medium/top) but aqadvisor.com isn't using it completely yet. It does for species that uses "B" area, for now. Look for it to show up eventually on all levels of water columns.
Ah, gotcha, thanks for heads up.

I know they are, just thinking about them as a second choice, but they like to occupy the same are of the tank as the Glofish. So there for I was thinking maybe Kuhli loach(s)?
