60G Current Stock
(3) Roseline Sharks
(3) Diamond Tetras - +3 will be added in a week
(2) Harlequin Rasboras (will be getting more for a group of 6)
(2) Kuhli Loaches (will be getting more unsure as to how many)
(1) Koi Angelfish
(1) Brittlenose Pleco

I would like to add these to finish off the tank once my fish have more of each listed below.

-Farlowella
-Dojo Loaches
-Cockatoo Dwarf Cichlid

Any thoughts suggestions? Other ideas? Maybe too many fish? Or certain ones that won't work?

I think you should add 3-5 to each school (loaches/shark/rasboras/tetras )and leave it at that
Do you think having 7 to 8 roseline sharks might be too much? For a 60G long?

I would settle it at 5-6.
Awesome I was told 6 would be to many for a 60 long with what I have in there?

But I would very much enjoy seeing more of them in there!

Having khuli loaches myself, I can definitely suggest for you to consider bumping up your khuli count to at least 10 minimum.

They have very low bio-load, so adding more realty wont impact the cycle.

Awesome once I get the 3 diamond tetras out the QT ill get some kuhli loaches do you think 8 would be too much for the bio to handle or should I just get 4?

I also need to figure out whats going on with my angelfish he just started showing symptoms of white little bumps on head near the eye. Doesn't look like ich but maybe it is in a different form.

You could easily add 8-10 more khuli loaches with no issues. They are a social fish that likes a larger shoal.

Here is a pic of our 65g from last month. Now it has some pieces of drift wood in it. This tank has about 10 khuli loaches in it, but I don't think you can see them in the pic.

It had a lot more stocking than your 60g, and it stays cycled just fine.

Check out the site Aqua Huna for a good selection of community fish for very competitive prices. Their s&h is only $12

S&H? I'll definitely look into them and wow that tank looks awesome! Do you see the loaches pretty often I never see mine unless I pull my driftwood out or above the substrate a little. Oh right shipping and handling haha that's not bad at all.
