Good afternoon/evening/morning fellow aquarists

I have been toying around with different options for stocking my future 40 gallon breeder, and this is going to be final plan. I'd like to do something like this
x1 Geophagus species (maybe Tapajos)
x1 Other species of different yet compatible Geophagus (maybe Pindare)
x10 Rummynose tetras
I will use an Aquaclear 50 and weekly water changes.
Edit: Added some geophagus ideas)

Thanks in advance

I don't know very much so I'm mostly hoping to give a bump. But I think that geoghagus need a sandy substrate. I also think they'll eat fish that can fit in their mouths so I'd def recommend the serpaes instead of rummynoses.

Thanks. I was gonna use sand, and I realized that as well so I changed to serpaes.

I've scraped this bit of information up.
Geophagus Tapajos gets to 5-6 inches
Geophagus Pindare gets to 6 inches
Geophagus Parnaibae gets to 4-5 inches
And Geophagus Taeniopareius gets to 5 inches
Maybe this will help? Or am I beating a dead horse?
