In a 29g though, burnsbabe, I don't think there is room for another loach species.
The only other loach species that I can think of that stays small and would work in a 29 (with the other stock) would be kuhlis and they are so shy I doubt they'd do much as far as getting dwarf chains to "come out of their shells".

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I'd agree that there isn't room for another species. I thought about getting Khulis to begin with but didn't want to get the 20 it'd take to ever see them.

Seems the problem isn't entirely solved that way though.
