    In addition to what was mentioned above (all good advice) the loach needs to be in a school as well. Depending what kind it is it could get too big for your tank. I would definitely recommend getting...

    It can't hurt to clean your sponge more often than you already do. Six weeks is a long time to not clean it so doing it every 3-4 weeks would be better. If you notice it ever getting dirty or...

    But people obviously do this, so is it only safe to do if you have another filter running or is it okay to do if you save the BB on from the biomax that is also in AC filters?

    I can't think of any that don't need to be in schools. You could go for 7 or 8 loaches instead if you wanted but other than that I can't think of anything. Maybe someone else could help.

    As for the stockings issues...

    2 gouramis in a tank that size seems dangerous. I think one will most likely kill the other and you should try to rehome 1 of them.

    Your nitrates are fine. Anything below 40ppm is safe and below 20 is ideal. The lower the better for the most part.

    Cycle your tank first then add fish slowly if your doing a fish in cycle. I would recommend a fishless cycle though or transferring over filter media from your old established tank.

    Male and females lip lock often. It is part of breeding but doesn't guarantee that they will. It's just part of their normal interaction with each other.
