Hi I know ive posted a few different threads around the subject but I would just like a few oppinions on my tank plans for my new 90g. Please let me know what you think, or if you have any suggestions etc.

90 Gallon with a Rena XP3 and an internal UV steriliser.

2 Angel fish
1 Redspot Gold Severum
2 Keyhole Cichlids
5 Marbled hatchets (need to swap some of current school for true marbled hatchets)
4 Spotted headstanders
5 Neon Dwarf Rainbows
3 Bosmani Rainbows
6 Botia Histronica
1 Syno Eupterus

So what do you guys think? Is it too much? Is it just right? Could I add more?

I think those would go together really well. The only thing I would add is maybe make the raibows schools of 6 each. They do better in schools, and it would look way cooler

sounds just peachy to me! i think it will be a beautiful tank!

The true test of character is not how much we know how to do, but how we behave when we dont know what to do.

make dsure you have a tight fitting hood with no openings! hatchets are notorious for jumping to an unintentional suicide...

also it sound like a good set up for the mst part, just make sure that you do not exceed 90 inches of mature fish.. as i am not sure how large all of these fish get and it could be a problem once all the fish matuer.

thanks guys!

Gourami - Id like to add a few more rainbows maybe one more of each but that might be pushing it a bit.

brandeeno - Yeah ive been working about the figures and it comes to being about right, i prefare to take into consideration total surface area and also floor space for the species as well.
