The one he's trying to sell me is quite large already. I think he's trying to sell it to me bc he knows the size that I'm getting.

Cats I like my Oxydoras Niger, Hes great. Slow grower in captivity, mine does like 1/2 an inch a month if im lucky.

You have room to add stuff in your 200. But its hit or miss like many say how the new expansive territories work out. Sometimes a solid stock (as in ur 90) eliminates all that.

I gotta ask is your Mayan a trouble maker? mine is.

Hoplos don't do well with aggressive tank mates. Synodontus catfish would be a much better option.
