Being that you mainly have bottom dwellers I would say yes to an upgrade. Pics can help with your pleco ID

do you have a suggestion of size by chance?

Yep, with the loaches in mind (and whatever species the pleco could be), you might want to upgrade if not rehome if possible. The tank could have double the length while staying 37 gallons if it weren’t so ridiculously tall. I hate how manufacturers prioritise the height so much. :facepalm:

The largest you have room and money for. I like the 40 gallon breeder tanks. The volume isn't much larger than your 37, but it has a larger footprint (36" x 18").

Try a tank with a 120cm x 40cm footprint. If you can, go bigger.
