Cool fish! But being as it reminds me too much of an eel or snake, not for my tanks! Think thats why i don't much care for loaches as well....too much like eels for my taste. Caught way too many of those nasty things while fishing.
I actually acquired a tank stand for a 29/37g tank recently that has the same issue. I have a stout piece of lumber cut for it, just need to attach it. Should take care of that problem. Don't know you wanna do that or can do that for the dresser.
