Yes lol. I just told babarian how I would stock it. Plus IME plecos eat algae on large surface area stuff (glass, big rocks, driftwood, large leaved plants (swords, crypt, ect.), than the otos eat it where the plecos can physically get. Like small leaved plants (rotalas, glosso, ludwigias, ect). I would not mix the to if you arent going to plants the heck out of the tank. Babarian i guess you could do rams if you want to. Would that be your centerpiece?

90 gallons isn't large enough for clown loaches.

Well if they are small, you could keep them. They grow pretty slow.

Agreed. They require a REALLY large tank once grown - larger than the vast majority of people can accommodate.

I fail to understand what the growth rate has to do with anything.

I agree also. But if they are babies than you can have them. If they are 7+ than i would rehome them.

I suspect that you don't have a lot of experience with botine loaches, otherwise you would never suggest getting rid of them once they are big.
