Hey everyone. I'm doing a tank with Yellow Labs, Demasoni, Rusties, Aceis, and Trewavasae. I was wondering if they will be compatible. Its a standard 75 gallon tank 48x 18x 20. I was told Plecos would be fine and other catfish would be suitable as well. Please let me know what you guys have had luck with so I don't go and kill anything unnecessarily.

They may survive and be somewhat ignored, but in my opinion it is a poor idea and kinda cruel.

Synodontis catfish species are usually the best choice.

Plecos can do okay but sometimes are abused.

I tried cory cats before I knew better.. The lasted a few months while my mbuna were juvies but as soon as they started maturing the cory cats got murdered. I wouldnt suggest it..

Also with 4 species in your tank, some of which are pretty agressive its already gonna be pretty crowded.

Ok, thanks I appreciate the advice. I figured that was the case but wasn't sure. Thought I'd ask. Thanks again.
