ehh created the topic: stockng advice

so my new tank(45 gallons 48x18x12) currently has 5 ruby barbs, a 6" syno cat(done growing) and a bn pleco.

ive decided im going to add keyhole cichlids, which i can get next week.
i was planning on adding 3. but i mentioned it to my gf and she wants me to add 5.
consider this tank a long term home.

thoughts?

The syno carry will still grow. They get quite big. I think you might be over stocked with 5 key holes. Might get a pair of its 5.

The syno cat is about 3 years old lol. I think he/she has stunted.
I'm not hoping for a pair but I've read even pairs aren't aggressive.
But I was thinking 5 will make me overstocked too.
