like both, with or without driftwood!!nice setup. fish avatar
your water looks clear so i think you must have a great filter. however in saying that, i would say for that size tank you may want to consider another pleco as usually you would have one pleco per 35-55 gallon tank within a few years they will grow to be 18 inches no problem in a tank that size.. Or by adding a few more syno's. wow lots of fry!! that will be alot of fish once they start to grow. fish avatar
