I have a 46 gallon bowfront with the following
4 Madagascar Rainbows
7 McCulloch Rainbows
3 Mono Sebae
2 SAE
As of now i add a 1/2 teaspoon for every 5 gallons for the monos, and i'm going to take them back once they get over 3 inches for smaller ones. Looking at getting something to add some activity to the bottom. I was thinking about getting around 3 Yoyo loaches. Thanks for any help.

Loaches dont tollerate salt and neither do corys.

i think its a mistake to keep a brackish water fish with freshwater fish. I think its even more of a mistake to alter the water to suit one species.

I'm not too familiar with any of those fish, but I do have a question. Since the "monos" apparently get too big for your tank, and have different water requirements than the other fish (brakish), why not find a more compatible fish that does not require the salt? That way you could have the yoyo loaches in the bottom for activity without worrying about them dying from the salt in the tank.

The rainbows are fine with the salt and the mono's live in freshwater when there small (they start out in fresh, go to brackish at 4 in. and eventually total salt).I was planning on angels but the rainbows can be fin nippers. I am just wondering what bottom dwellers can go in the tank.
