Okay, I'm getting ready to redo my 46 gallon bowfront and here's what I was thinking;
4 Apistogramma Paucisquamis
15 Paracheirodon simulans (Green Neon Tetra)
3-5 Long Nose Angelfish (Pterophyllum leopoldi- Grow to 2-3 Inches)

I was looking into a Rio Negro biotope, but I'm open to any SA. Any other ideas to go with these???

I like that stock provided you make seperate territories for each cichlid. I also like Sharkdude's idea of an exotic Pleco. Personally I would go for a Zebra Pleco (L046) if you don't mind spending the money to get one. I like the L239 that Sharkdude suggested also. They are a great looking fish.

Keep an eye on the Long-Noses because they can get a bit aggressive when they breed.

Wow Zebra!? Nice name drop Nutter..they go for $250 here. If you don't want to go that route then you might try L129 or a L260. Any one of these would be a sight in your tank.

I was looking at Watermelon Plecos (L191), Three Beacon (L091) or Blue Phantoms (L128), but I'm still thinking. I know that watermelon plecos get big (16 inches), but I also heard that they take a long time to grow, so I probably would have a larger tank by then (I probably won't risk it). I like the L260 and Zebra Pleco, if I can get them at a reasonable price. Also, does anyone know how expensive L264 run?? There another one I'm looking at.

Wow...I had no idea there were dwarf angelfish. I'm surprised they're not more popular. Sounds like a nice tank!
They are smaller but very aggressive which may be why and not very common.

This sounds like an amazing tank. I would second the Exotic Pleco of some sort to round it all out.
