Are you looking for advice? Criticism of your neglect?

Ha Ha, no to neither.
I just decided to dive back into the hobby and start a new tank or two. The folks here seemed helpful.
Actually, I have always had great success with my tanks, maybe since before you were born. Not sure why you would criticize.
When stocked lightly and fed properly, tanks actually need little attention.

Yeah it looks to me like posted here because you mostly have Characins in your tank.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.

The good thing about this site is that suggestions will be offered. The longevity of your loach shows that it was well cared for. I hope you will take my advice.
Silver dollars are schooling fish and need to be in groups of their own kind. A school of silver dollars needs a tank much larger than 30 gallons.
Black skirt tetras are also schooling fish.
I would rehome the silver dollar and bump the school of black skirts up to at least 7

AF: Thanks. These fish were all in schools back in their day. All are 10 years old or near. What do you do when the school dwindles down due to old age? Keep adding to it? Doesn't make sense to me.
The Silver Dollars used to be in a 70 gallon, which has been empty for a year now, and I'm not sure what I want to do with it.
