Hello everyone,
This is my first post so i hope I'm in the right section, i need some help and advice and i hope someone can help!
I have a 200lt tank (i think that equals 52 gallons?). I'm going to set this up, from scratch, to house Pakistani leaches as the main attraction. My questions/problems are thus:

* I am having trouble finding information on their natural habitat, i want to bioscape the tank as close as possible to their natural environment, from what i know they like soft sand and some smooth pebbles for the substrate, but dose anyone have any recommendations past that?

* What plants would be native to their region?

* I would like some algae cleaning fish for maintenance, but only if i can find one from their native region, any one have any info in that regard?

That's all for now, if anyone at all can help me i would be very thankful :D
