    I'm not sure about doing 11 Siamese algae eaters. . . looking at live aquaria they get to 6"? Maybe substitute them with ottos instead as they remain much smaller.

    You have too many schooling fish. 2 mid/top dwelling schooling species are recommended in a 55 gal.

    WOW. thanks lol. Guess I'll just get a 2 of the schoolers and put them in bigger groups. Im use to stocking bigger tanks. And I'm moving out of my safe zone: angel, clown loaches, otocinculus, into other fish. Hehe. I clearly don't know enough about them. Glad I didn't buy them yet
