Depends on how big your tank is. I keep 6 G. Altifrons is a 150 gallon tank with angels and cories. They do best in groups and grow very large. My Geos are about 9" each.

Geos are pretty peaceful and can get along with most fish. They require a sand substrate.

I wouldn't recommend it. Why not go for a group of Bolivian rams instead. I have 3 tanks: 17 gallon, 90 gallon and 150 gallon. The 6 Geos in the 150 are pushing it. I keep Bolivian rams and schools of tetras/rasboras in my 90, and it makes for a very peaceful tank.

Uarus get huge. I used to keep them. He is going to get way too big for a 90 gallon tank. Same for BGK.
