Look up the freshwater rockfish, these are pretty cool and are semi aggressive with any smaller fish around them, ie smaller fish will get eaten.

We also have some butis, butis crazy fish, these are also really cool.

And any sort of eels are cool as well.

Axolotls don't need land they stay in the larval form for life in most cases. Laos Pygmy loaches are nice too.

If I am not mistaken the "freshwater" rockfish is brackish.

IME so far they are not in any shape, form, or fashion mean. They will eat anything that will fit in their ginormous mouths though. They also seem to be impervious to bulling from other fish.

Both get to large for a 29 but none the less cool and a little wacky

I think Rhino Plecos are really cool looking.
And if you want some variety in your tank add a couple shrimp, they're super funny to watch and clean up more debris than they produce.

Rhino plecos are cool. I've got one that's about 5" can't wait for him to get big!

I don't want to highjack, but what is he with? I want a GT and I think they'd look awesome together.

I've never seen a Rhino pleco. Mind if I ask how much you paid for it and what size you find them usually?

We just bought an African Butterfly not realizing that they are actually carnivores. Any idea how aggressive these littles guys can be toward other fish?

Right now we only have one and it eats krill, blood worms and pretty well any frozen foods we put in there. Nothing else.

Can I have more than one? We have a 70 gal tank and he is all alone.

Also, could these types of fish live peacefully with a pair of angle fish??

Mine leaves my fish alone but he's small compared to my cuddas. They will be aggressive towards small top water fish and will eat small fish as well. Mine eats pellets now big it only ate bloodworms and crickets when I got him

Well right now there is a school of tetras in this tank but it isn't over stocked at all so there shouldn't be any issues with territory. We will see I guess if some of the tetras start to disappear!
