    Don't get me wrong, dojos are awesome. I have 3 in my 200g pond, but I'm pretty sure they have eaten some baby platy.

    Edit: Just noticed you have 5 dojos in a 65g. This is a great size for them. Dojos get up to 8 inches and a 65 will be barely suitable.
    I think you should either take extreme care of the water if you go with the 5 dojos, or you could go with 8-12 black kuhli loaches since these rarely even hit 4 inches and are very nice, not to mention, commonly cheap. However, I don't know if kuhlis are as hardy as dojos.

    Oops! I wasn't trying to hijack the thread -- I merely wanted input as to whether American Flagfish would be compatible with my dojos. Any chance they could be harmed by them?

    Loller, there is a separate forum here devoted entirely to loaches. Your posting there could be helpful.
