i picked up six macmasteri from my local fish shop ,they are still a bit small to sex i'm planing on keeping 1m 2f when i find out the sex, what else could i keep in a 20 gallon long tank would it be possible to keep a few livebearers in there such as guppys.
also as for tank decoration i've got either a smallish piece of bogwood or a large piece which is almost the full length of the tank, just wondering what the fish would appreciate the most :)

Hi all,
Not sure about Rummy noses they may be a bit bottom orientated, but Black Neon Tetra's make good dithers and are easy to find, as they stay well up in the water column and like soft water. Otocinclus should be fine, but you need to feed them (I use zucchini and green beans).

Both Rummy noses and Otocinclus need good water quality, and Otocinclus don't do well in non-planted tanks.

Hi all,
What about some marbled hatchet fish as dithers?
Marbled Hatchets are good dithers if you can find them, but you really need a wingless fruit fly culture and Daphnia to keep them happy long term. Black Neon Tetras are a lot easier to keep.

cheers Darrel
