    I'm planning to house 2 pair of A. borellii in my 33 gal long (4 ft) tank. I plan to add both pair at once, but I need to have plenty of caves, broken lines of sight, etc in the tank. I'm looking for suggestions on how to set everything up. I am NOT looking to breed them - just a community tank. Here is an overview shot of the tank:
    Here is a closer shot of the left side. Inside the cave ornament are 2 terra cotta flower pots sort of positioned with the open enda together, but cracked enough to use as a cave. I also have an apisto cave and a piece of pvc piping among the "fake" plants:
    Here on the right side, i have an apisto cave and two cichlid stones amongst the fake plants:

    Here in the center, I have a large log ornament (it's hollow inside - my bn pleco hangs out in here a lot during the day:

    Any suggestions on how to arrange things in order to help increase my chances of each pair claiming opposite sides of the tank?

    It honestly looks pretty decent to me. I'd try it like that. What else is going in other then the borellis?

    6-8x bronze cories, a bn pleco, and 12-16x black neons

    That's a nice stock! I have to get my hands on black neons soon.

    I agree with Matt, it looks good as far as the cave arrangement goes.
