I have a empty 300 wide with coast to coast over flows. I was thinking of doing a nice group of Piranha to get back into keeping. If I start with babies in this size tank will I have to modify my over flows till they are bigger? Should I turn down the flow on my pump so they are not pushed around?

Yes if it won't do harm to the pump and as they grow adjust the flow.

common pleco - id get a bigger 5” er or so if you can and provide a hide... it will probably get eaten eventually-

but that’s the only thing i’ve had success in mixing with pygos
