Now is the time to do lots of reasearch and dreaming. This is part of the fun. What kinds of fish do you like? It would make the perfect loach tank

Clown Loaches are wonderful but get very large and that tank would hold three for a very long time but they would eventually out grow it.
Yoyo (Botia almorhae), kuhli (pangio kuhli and pangio javanikus) these are the black and also the striped, zebra (Botia striata), dwarf (Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki)and angelicus (Botia kubotai ). all these loaches are friendly community fish.They also love to have others of their own kind around(need three or more) and the more of each you have the funnier they are. they are almost like little kids or puppies playing. I have had pleasant experiences with all the above (as you can tell I love my loaches ) hid more than I like but are beautiful. I also have hillstream loaches but they need special care.
Heres a great place to see pictures and research loaches if you would like. https://www.loaches.com/
