I just finished setting up a saulosi species only,
75 gallon 48 x 18 x 21
eheim 2075(bio) and ac 110(mech.)

I have 13 juvenile saulosi and 3 petricola cats
I,m thinking I should or could add more now, since they are all young,
I can also add more of the same style rocks I kindof like limited amount though,
what do you guys think?

That tank will comfortably hold a colony of 20-25, IMO. It might look busy at the upper end of that range, though.

Aesthetically, I'm not a fan of fake plants - or any plants in an AC tank - but that's just my personal taste. I like the rock work and background.

I like the busy look. I'd even try more. I want a 75 or 90 to put my colony of Hara in. I have between 50-80. Species tanks work better too, they kind of check each other with so many fish. I always try to stock upwards of the limits. It actually works better IMO so long as your filtration can handle it and you keep up with water changes.

Did you make that background? I like.
