Good looking tank, Chris, but I'd see about adding more shells. Multies do best with at least 3-5 shells per fish. The brevis probably need a similar amount. You really can't have too many shells in the tank. Escargot shells are easily found, cheap, and work great with shellies.

You do know there's a risk of the multies and brevis interbreeding?

^^^ Agreed, more shells and I would suggest doing either Brevis or Multis but not both together.

You'll probably have some that prefer the rocks over the shells (I've always had that), but it's best to at least give 'em the option of shells.;)

How many of each species do you have in the tank?

My multies spent the first 3 weeks in and above the rocks, well, except for 1 who immediately claimed half the tank as her own and proceeded to start spawning immediately.
