    My grandfather has a 5 year old lone Yoyo/Pakistani Loach (~3") in a 25gal tank.
    I was doing research to spruce up the tank and maybe add a few colorful fish/larger shrimp.

    Any stocking advice on tank mates for the loach?
    I'd really like a shrimp (bamboo/sulawesi) or mystery snail to help him keep the tank clean as well- anyone know if they'd make good tank mates?

    Any advice would be helpful- thank you!

    Yoyo loaches require a 30+ gallon tank. You also need 3+ for them to be happy.

    Yes they can grow to 5 inch which is way to small of a tank for such a big loach try to get a 50 gal. You can then have a lot more fish in it plus the loach. Send some pics of the loach! :)

    I would love for him to have a bigger tank, but my grandpa doesn't have room for it ): I can send a photo later!

    Ok but if you do want more fish than a bigger tank is needed

    Yeah, figured. Might just clean up the tank a bit then and let this guy have his space
