    I've been reading profiles for the Dojo Loach. I have seen three of sites that suggest a 30 gallon is large enough to house three. However, I saw another site that said a minimum 100 gallon tank was required.

    That's a huge difference. So I'm wondering how large a tank they actually need.

    I'm stocking a 36" 35 gallon tank and I'm wondering if I can keep 3 dojos, possibly with some Bleeding Heart Tetras and Harlequin Rasboras.

    I have four in a 55g tank and they do pretty good.I personally wouldn't keep them in anything smaller because of their activity level. Mine are about 6 inches.

    Yeah, for how active they are and the size they get 55 gallons seems more suitable.

    I love mine they can be very funny. There are several vids here somewhere if you want to look before you decide to buy. they do need to be in a group, not less that three but more is better :)
