can i get some feedback on my rank
That's a lot of fish in that tank! I would suggest trimming down the varieties of fish you have and increasing the school sizes of the schooling fish like all of your barbs and the corydoras catfish. Also, the sun catfish, the pleco (probably, if it's a common pleco) and especially the black shark will outgrow your tank. Suns and common plecos can easily break a foot in length; the black shark can reach up to two feet long.
I have two sun cats as well. Read they grew slow. Boy where they wrong! Tiny when I bought them, grew to 6 inches in no time. Had to move them to another tank. If the fish are still small, may be ok for a while. Make sure to keep a close eye on the water quality. Tiger barbs are one of my favorites! They are always up to something!
thanks for the feedback, yes it is a common pleco but when it gets big i am gonna sell it to a store and get a clown pleco or something that doesnt get huge, the black shark is about 3 inches same witht he sun cat, the sun cat is not very active though he always hides. Is there anyway to make him more active
I put some blue led lights in my tank. The Sun Cats dont come out much during the day, But they are very active at night under the led lights! They are night owls!
Your common pleco should fit in your tank for a long time,i used to have a 30 gallon and it took 3 years before he even started out-growing it.:)
