    Hy every one

    I have just freshly set up my old aquarium and tried out my skills in aquascaping (still need a bit of practice) ;)
    The fish are in another aquarium for the time being. I have:
    3x Hyphessobrycon megalopterus,
    5x Hemigrammus bleheri,
    5x Caridina multidentata,
    2 couples of Ancistrus spec. that used to live in this 160l aquarium



    (the tubes are the temporary CO2 solution ;) )

    I am planing on adding two or three Atya gabonesis to my population. My concern is, that the Ancistrus and them might get in each other's way.
    IF I would put the Ancistrus back in here, I would only put in one couple. But I have the problem that they mate all the time, which makes me worry about the ground as well. I would like the ground to be overgrown. But these small buggers make such a terrible mess :(

    So... right now I really can't decide if to put one Ancistrus couple in there or not. (My main problem is, that that one male Ancistrus is my absolute favourite fish) :p

    I'd be really glad to hear some pro and contra arguments from anyone who cares to help :)
