Not much buckeye in SoCal. Almost certainly manzi.

Main issue is to be careful about where you collect. My understanding is that you can't legally collect on public lands in SoCal, but I may...

Hard to tell, but it looks vaguely mosquito-larvae-ish. Your description of its behavior is consistent with that.

I use regular old "dechlor", not Prime. Works fine, much cheaper than Prime (considering the dosing, of course), definitely doesn't have anything added that can cause problems with the Purigen.

Yes, brackish. They start off in pretty much fresh water, but need more salinity as they grow.. Schooling fish, get fairly large, as you've noticed. Check this out:

The "cockatoo cichlid" is apistogramma cacatuoides, a dwarf cichlid that would probably do fine with all of the others.

I keep threadfins with neon green rasboras (Microdevario kubotai) and axelrod's rasboras (Sundanio axelrodi), both of which would be considered "nano-fish".

Ropefish will pick off smaller fish over time. They're not aggressive, per se, but they are definitely predatory. I'd consider things like rummynoses, neons, small rasboras, etc. off-limits,...

I'd probably try a pendant, hung from the ceiling and suspended a foot or two above the tank.

Yeah, cluster headaches are a breed apart. Another comparison that I've read is amputation of a limb without anesthesia.
