    From what I have reasherched they got to be 8" max and the Idea was to let them grow out in the 125 and them move them to the 1500g pond once built with a pair of koi. But thats only if I whent that way with the clean up crew. But I do appriciate the info. Im just kida runing ideas through my head till I actualy get to FL. Ive still got two+ months to go before I have to decide for shure. I like feed back frome otheres though. It helps me get my ideas my concreate.

    I would skip the synos, they are harder water higher PH fish.
    Bristlenose plecos are ideal in your set up and lots of folks down here have spares!

    I agree with Fern the bristlenose would be better in that setup. That being said if you ever do a setup where you will add synos angelicus is an awesome choice. They are beautiful in my opinion. The setup you are planning seems like it will be great.

    Ben thanks I thought they were cool to and if fern can get me a few BN plecos I deff won't turn that down. But I don't think I will ever get a chance to do a tank big enough for them. My next big tank will be for a salt water. And then all I will Realy have room for is a few smaller ones.like my 38 tall and my 26. And if I can get it built a 48"*10"*7" tank for my wifes prize beta. I'm actualy looking forward to building that one for her. LxWxH. And then maby a few 10's for tetras and guppys. If my wife will let me. Haha. She is still the boss.
