Fish Dilemma
 
I'm moving next semester to be closer to my uni, so I'm moving into a smaller apartment and I can't keep all my full size tanks...75 gal, 55 gal, and a 15 gal. My ultimate goal is to decide on where I'm putting my fishes before I move. I am for sure taking the 75 and 15 gal, but the 55 gal will be replaced with a 57 gal column.

As of right now this is the fishes I have:
11 Cherry Barbs
13 Tiger Barbs
4 Albino Barbs
2 Rosey Barbs
1 Opaline Gourami
1 Golden Gourami

1 Sunset Gourami
2 Rainbow Sharks
2 S.A. Catfishes
1 Rubber Lip Pleco
1 Tire Track (Not 100% this is the correct eel)
1 Peacock Eel
1 Betta
14 Kuhli Loaches

My plan is this:
75 Gallon
1 Tire Track
1 Rainbow Shark
1 Golden Gourami
1 Opaline Gourami
13 Tiger Barbs
4 Albino Barbs
2 Rosey Barbs

57 Gallon
1 Peacock Eel
1 Rainbow Shark
11 Cherry Barbs
2 S.A Catfishes
1 Rubber Lip Pleco
1 Betta/1 Sunset- not sure on these one but I know both can't be in there, betta is with the above right now and there are no problems

15 Gallon
14 Kuhli Loaches
1 Betta/1 Sunset Gourami

The eel and rainbow shark do not belong in a column tank. While its 50 some gallons, most of them are wasted gallons since fish don't swim up and down. Depending, the catfish may not either.

I would not put luhli loaches in such a small tank, either. They like to zoom around, which they cannot do in a small tank.

But yeah, column/hex tanks are almost useless for anything other than small fish.

Only other option is to bring my 55 gallon out there, but I would have to set them back to back. I don't trust the S.A. catfishes with the kuhlis. My fiance and I are toying with the option of returning 6 Kuhlis but that's the only fish we can return
