I've bought a Juwel Vision 450ltr tank to rehome my pleco. Any suggestions on what tankmates I should buy. At the moment he is with bronze coryies, platies and a shoal of glowlight tetras Smile

You have time to choose fish while the new tank establishes -I assume you are going to donate filter media from the 150 litre and move the pleco in straight away?

What fish do you like?
Do you want one pet fish or pretty shoaling fish?

What decor are you planning? - the plec's species will have a bearing on this as some bulldoze more than others Laughing

The vision 450 is a lovely tank.

Yes, I'm going to use some filter media from both my 150ltr and my daughter's 60ltr, how long should I wait until I re-home my pleco As far as choice of fish, I've always had shoaling fish and your typical community fish.... I'm open to suggestions. Fred (my pleco) is very docile, so I guess cichlids are out.
