You Need A Bottom Feeder Get A Bristlenose Pleco! They don't grow as big as a common pleco.

If I were going to add a catfish I'd get either a few synodontis lucipinnis or synodontis petricola - they are similar looking, don't get very big, and are very pretty with the spots imo.

If you are looking for mbuna, you could get a cobalt blue zebra or a snow white.

How is your aggression with that mix?

It's not really all that bad but maybe a nip at the fin every once in a while I'm gonna be getting a darker cap on the gravel tomorrow so I just want a fish with great colors I'll be picking up a male red E for sure I'm think a albino scolufi (know I spelled it wrong). My rusty is now just starting to get a nice blue to him.

I guess the sheer amount of number you could stick with is what catches the eye the most I just want 1-3 great show color fish and others as a back drop splash. I'm think I could get to around 14-15 with a heavy eye an lots of rocks. I do 2 water changes a week.

A red top Hongi, cynotilapia cobue, or a kyoga flame back would be some cool adds.
