well gues both my cories are dead now and i am ready for a new bottom feeder this time i would like to try loaches. As much as i have read they like to be in groups and i havent found one smaller than 2 inches. Are they just like corys as they are fairly large and like to be in groups or are there any out there that stay small or dont mind being alone because i dont have a ton of space for them. So basically what i am saying are there any small ones 2-3" that like to be in groups of three or are there any larger one 4-6" that dont mind being alone and will they take care of flake food on the bottom? I am debating on getting loaches or shrimps.
