Had a small fotoshoot with my yo-yo loaches, they are between 2 and 4 inches now.

Two more pictures of my fast growing fire mouth cichlids (Thorichthys meeki) I’ve really grown to love these fish, and together with the loaches, will be a staple in my tanks from now on.

I'm thinking of replacing the group of rosy red barbs (Pethia nigrofasciata) for something more fitting, a bigger shoaling fish for the top regions of the tank. better compatable with the needs of the cichlids and loaches. does anyone have a suggestion?

it doesn't matter were there from originally, but a higher swimming fish, peaceful to semi agressive, and a bit bigger would have my preference.

What is your GH again and pH? If you have hard water, congo tetras are a good choice, for soft water probably buenos aires tetras, they can be a bit nippy though so be wary of them.

My water is quite soft, ph around 6.5. Buenos aires also eat plants if I recall, that would be a dealbreaker

I changed it a bit, create more places for the cichlids to spawn and make territories, I’m not sure which set up I like better, you guys?
