Nice work on the bistlenose mate Smile

There is nothing against mixing plecos apart from the concentratin of males. Bristlenose of all species are territorial and will fight eachother for prime caves. even if you have 30 caves in the tank they may all decide that one is the best and all want it. I suggest 1 male per 1.5 square foot of tank bottom and 2 females per male. and if I have more than 2 males in a tank i offer at least 3 caves. There are ways to bend the 1.5 foot rule but playing it safe is def what i advise to start with. also remember that breeding will be sevarly reduced, if it happens at all, with multiple males in a tank.

if you want my advice, Start them up slowly. Dont fire them all up at once. I say this because 15 tanks will take prob about 2-3 hours a day to maintain and i would slowly build myself up to that.

But yeah, dont envy the water changes or the power bills...my 8 tanks adds about $250-$300 to my quaterly power bill...15 Shocked

The thing to remember here is that electricity prices rise consistantly every year. This means that solar panels will save you increasing amounts of money over their lifetime. This makes payback time shorter.
