120g Cycled and Stocked

Well after a long 3 weeks of cycling my 120g I finally was able to move my oddballs into it. The decor is far from done, I just wanted to give them adequate hiding spots for now. I plan on finding some nice driftwood to take the place of the PVC. I also would like to try my hand at a few more live plants. Tomorrow I plan on trying to find a mid to upper water dweller since all of my current fish are bottom dwellers, thinking about silver dollars but we'll have to see.

Stocklist:
5.5 - 6" Red Wolf Fish
16" Fire Eel
4" & 5" Senegal bichir
9.5" Ropefish

Now enjoy the pics

Because I have about $150-200 worth of fish in there and I want to ensure they stick around. Sure if the fish are hardy enough they will live through a cycle, but I want the best for my fish so they will grow huge and grow fast.

I'm curious to know what kind of fish you have that are $2500... especially if your careless enough to spill beer in the tank.
