90 gal with 7 Calvus, 3 neo Buescheri, 5 P. Nigripinnis and 1 nigriventris...
everything is small...
I was thinking of adding Multies or Speciosus or Juli. Transcriptus or another Juli..
any suggestions?

I'd definately get more paracyps... they like to school in larger groups. And 2 more beuscheri to increase the chances of getting a happy pair.

I would skip getting another territorial rock dweller, but shellies would be great. That lone nigriventris may not play well with smaller shellies, though. If a multifaciatus colony was well established before the nigriventris realized that there was food in the shells, it may work out.

Other options for an additional species:
A school of non-jumbo cyps,
A school of xenotilapia (sand sifters), or
A pair of gobies

Thanks for the response Triscuit, I also thought about the Nigriventris but I like him so much, definitely a really cool fish...
Anyway I wanted to add more P. Nigripinnis but 5 was all they had...I actually have 8 in a 55 that I could add to the 90 but I want to see what they all look like in a few months to make sure they are from the same area...
I've also thought about the Cyps...but the LFS doesn't have any...
Sand sifters...I like it...

2 of the Buescheri have already claimed a "territory" and though they are still small I believe I have a pair...
