Tank seems small for multiple plecos (even BN) or loaches or synodontis.

Hmmm..Getting a good deal on some local bred synodontis multipunctatus..would like to get some.But the ones in my 75 gallon are huge already so i will have to wait..having bad luck with corys..plecos come real small around here.
thanks for the help.ill keep looking at my options

I just saw yo yo loaches recommended for a 29G in a cookie cutter so maybe those would work?
