I have a 150gal I just got I’m setting up for Geophagus….
I got an Fluval Fx6, a uvc, spray bar for filtration…. And a wave maker…

what else would you add for filtration?

I’m stocking with the following-
6 Geophagus tapajos
3 Hecklii
4-6 Guianacara dacrya
2 blue acara
2 pleco

is this ok to stock? Not trying to over stock
And I’ve never had a tank this big….. so any advice is helpful

sump filter isn’t an option I cannot have the tank drilled where I currently am

Welcome aboard
I personally would take the Heklii off the list and replace with a group of Tetra.

I agree
I tried to keep heckelli in a 150 gal (even though I was warned it would end up too small for a group), with similar tank mates.

At about 3 years of age (heckelli maturity) they started to systematically kill each other off with stress.
