I was curious if my tank is big enough to have any loaches in it. I have 2 orange swordtails and 2 black mollies that is in the tank right now what would be a good suggestion for a loach? I would be willing to get at least three if they would fit.

I have 150 filter by marineland and Maxi-Jet 400 by Marineland as well in my tank will that be enough oxygen and water movement for loaches?

OOOHHHH Loaches I love loaches (I have 8 species of loach) Kuhlis (Pangio Kuhlii), yoyos (Botia almorhae), dwarf loaches (Yasuhikotakia sidthimunki), Botia striata and on and on. I have clown loaches but they get much too big for your tank. Loaches like to be kept in groups of three or more and I recommend the kuhlis be kept in larger groups than that.
check this site out but research the sizes of the ones you decide you want. https://www.loaches.com/

I also forgot to mention i have a over population of snails in my ten gallon and my brother all does in his ten gallon i will just feed them to the loach. Will the loaches completely clean your tank of snails?

I don't see any snails in the tanks I have loaches in. My kuhlis don't eat snails but all the others do. By the way loaches like to be in groups so I suggest at least three.
