Its a juwel trigon 190 its dimensions are 98.5 x 60 x 70. I have 3 khuli loaches in there. The tank looks like it has loads more room but as i said im new to keeping fish and i wouldnt want my fish to be living in poor conditions so i wont add any more to this tank.

you need to add the pic to something like photo bucket or drop box if your on samsung and upload from there.

well if its smooth and almost sand like you could think of some other loach or some cories to go in.

Panda cories seem to be very popular here, think these want a group of at least 6, though I've seen people putting in 18 because they love them so much!

And yes, iv got my big and a little one, and hard not to just go out and buy another.

I think i will look into gettin some corys maybe 6 or 7. What do you have in your tanks. And what do you think of my tank the plants have grown alot since that pic. My mate thinks i should get a little piece of bogwood in there and moss to grow on it.

I have 6 rosey tetras, 6 polkadot loaches, 2 neon blue dwarf gouramis in at the moment. Will add a queen arabesque pleco and another group of fish possibly too and that will be it for me.

Ok, and this is JUST my opinion. I like things structured and ordered and so for me I would consider it a little messy. I'm just more interested in the aquascape side of things -hence my thread "mixed substrates" where I plan to create cliffs with caves and a sand beach. It's a totally different outlook. Possibly less natural but I want something different.

Also- is that a SW coral background on a freshwater tank!?!! Lol

Haha I'm glad you liked that because I've wondered for the last ten minutes if I sounded like a dick tbh.

But I refused to change it as if I asked, I'd want honesty not 100 x "oh it's lovely".
