    They need to be in a group, 6+, but the more the better. They don't like flow, and prefer fairly still water under floating plants. All the fish you've mentioned also need to be in a group (6+) apart from the Bristlenoses, but they should all be ok with glass cats, as long as there's a shady calm area for them where they won't be bothered... most community tanks are not really suitable for them because of this.

    They also like the water fairly cool at about 20°C so may not be suitable for a tropical tank.

    20 is too cool. Their natural temperature range is 21-26 (70-79).
