    i have been out today and bought 5 neons, 2 pleco, 2 clown loaches, and 2 dalmation mollies, they are all in the new tank swimming around happy as can be. i put my 2 catfish and platty in with them all and they seem much happier than they were before in my old tank. i just cant stop watching them, they are big time wasters. what else can i put in with them, any ideas? i like my fish to be different shapes and colours. xx

    Clown loaches will take years to get to their full size BUT... mine got to six inches in a year. Bristlenose get five-six inches. composition wise your tank sounds very pretty, we need to see pictures :) Just be aware that in a year you are going to be shopping for the Clowns a new home(good excuse for a bigger tank :) )
