I'm getting a larger tank for my Zebra Danios (~15/20 gallon) and someone in my circle of friends said their parents might be willing to part with their tank, but the problem is that they have 2 fish. I'm only comfortable taking their two fish if they're compatible with glowfish zebra danios, but I can't seem to find any information online if danios would get along with a Dojo Loachs and a Goldfish.

Does anyone know?

They wouldn't get along well with goldfish. Goldies are slow swimmers and would get their fins nipped and food stolen. I don't know about dojo loaches, maybe someone else can weigh in?

The goldfish may get very big too depending on the type

I tend not to worry much about about danio safety as they're one of the fastest aquarium fish you can buy and swim at the top of the tank.

But they may be too crazy and nippy for the goldfish. Goldfish tend to like cooler water too. I don't know anything about loaches other than the fact that they get quite large.... So someone else will need to chime in.
