They're really slender, they just grow pretty long (around 4") I think they'd be fine for the tank. If this tank goes well I may get a bigger tank if this tank goes well, I just don't want to go too crazy since it's my first one. I think I'm gonna call all my loaches ramen because they look like a bunch of noodles. Thanks for the input though!ValerieAdams said:I think (not completely sure) that the loaches will outgrow your tank
I've seen this said a lot, to overfeed your mystery snails and that they eat and poop a lot more than you'd expect. I'll be sure to get them some protein/calcium rich food. Thanks for the tip!Rtessy said:I'm pretty sure those loaches are fine for a 20, I've seen them recommended a few times for 20's, especially 20 longs. Really the only thing I want to mention is to make sure and feed those mystery snails some good protein. They don't just eat algae, actually they barely eat algae, and they stop eating once full. They'll eat a lot more than you expect, and they have tons of personality. It looks fine to me, but I have basically zero knowledge of peacock gudgeons, so I'll have to let someone else give it the final OK.
10 Kuhli Loaches seems like a lot, but imagining them swimming around seems really fun! I'll try to see if I can get maybe 8 instead of 10 or 12, since I really don't want to sacrifice the peacock gudgeons. If this tank goes well (it's my first) I can get an even bigger tank and really pack their school then! Thanks for the tipRavynn said:I would personally suggest this:
12x Celestial Pearl Danios
10-12x Kuhli Loaches
The kuhlis will be a lot more fun with those numbers
Thanks! I just chose mystery snails over other snails because they seem a bit bigger and more personable. I can also control their population much easier since it'd be pretty easy to see when the snail lays its eggs.75g Discus Tank said:
Well nerite snails won't need population control as they can't hatch in freshwater.Lantonor said:Thanks!

I have a question about actually stocking the aquarium to anyone who might be able to help me out. How would I go about stocking with these fish in order to avoid an ammonia spike? The CPDs and Peacock Gudgeons are relatively expensive at my LFS, so I really don't want to risk losing any of them.
