    The only issue is it is almost full on gallons and it is a tall.

    What sort of pleco is it? You may want to reconsider your current stock since both the flounder and the bumblebee goby are brackish fish.

    Dojo loaches are not appropriate for your tank, from a size point of view as well as because of the salt.
