My goal for this tank was to create a very natural aquascape that resembles a scene from a Central American lake.
1x V. synspilum (new)
1x H. pearsei (new)
1x V. argentea
2x (pair) T. meeki
2x (pair) A. multispinosa
1x H. nicaraguensis (male) -- I had 3 females as well but once a pair form and they spawned all hell broke out so I decided to just keep the male as he is the current "peace keeper" in the community.
3x C. sajica -- I'm down to 3 from 8. They were really small (and still are) so I'm guessing the others were made into late night snacks. The remaining three have put on a bit of size so hopefully they won't go missing.
1x Bristlenose Pleco
The meeki haven't spawned in quite a while however my multispinosa's spawn pretty regularly. I'm sure the stock will continue to evolve as the two Vieja and pearsei put on some size...
Thanks for looking!
