    If you want clown loaches, you need to get a school. Loaches of any type are schooling social fish and need that school to thrive!

    The thing is that they get REALLY big, I've read around a foot long, and a group of those is way too many for a 55 gallon. See the pics of fully grown adults on this page:
    Clown loaches - Loaches Online

    What about Kuhli loaches? Or Yo-yo loaches? Both are very cute and active and don't really get bigger than 4-6 inches!

    Anyone even considering clown loaches should read this:

    3 potted plants and 6 strings of plastic do not make a planted tank!

    You can help find out if its weak/ill stock or acclimation issues if you QT before adding to your main tank.

    With as large of fish as you have in your established tank, I'd be pretty wary of what new inhabitants I added.

    I had 5 loaches in my 55 gallon, as well. I found a home for them with a lady who has an indoor big pond.

    Well, don't know what those red spots are on those Silver Dollars but that is not normal and they should not have this. When spawning, they will get dark marks but not blood spots. Do you have a catfish in with them? If not, they have a parasite, a blood disease, something.........?

    Just my two cents; in the wild, believe it or not, pirahna are actually rather timid creatures, as they do have natural enemies. Are you absolutely sure you don't have pirahna? Do they have sharp teeth?
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

    Yup in the wild they also have a river full of space to run away from and stay in big packs. In a tank they are cornered and in fewer numbers. This makes them skittish and aggressive. If the guy had pirhana he would know lack of fingers would tell him that
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    I've never kept them before but aren't silver dollar's supposed to be silver? I don't know for sure if that's a piranha but it sure doesn't look like a silver dollar. At least not the ones I have seen.

    Actually I was curious and did more searching. Some of the Red Hooks have red markings on them. There are several types. Poor guy wasn't even talking about that and I kept taking the conversation back to those SD but those spots bugged me.

    Sorry hvc.
