    Hello :)
    So I have had my 60 gallon up[ and running now for 2 weeks. My nitrates are hanging steady at around 20. I never saw ammonia or nitrites, but that is because I transfered filter media over day one. So far this is what is in it.

    2 BPs
    8 harleguins
    4 Red Wag Platies
    1 Picus catfish
    1 upside down catfish

    So am I done? Or can I add something else?? If so any suggestions? Thanks in advance!!!

    Eventually the small fish are going to start disappearing during the night. Pictus are excellent nocturnal hunters. Pictus are schooling fish, so if you plan on keeping it, I would get some more.

    I hadnt read that pictus were schooling fish. I did some research before I got him. I also was no aware he would eat smaller fish...

    They'll eat anything that fits in their mouth. The upside down likes to school too.

    Grrr...I was under the impression from talking to people here and reading posts etc that they would be fine alone. So now I guess I need to fill out their schools. Can I add more of the two? How much room do I actually have left for adding fish?

    My filters are AquaClear 70. I have two of them. GPH is over 600.
