Dont loaches get big? I dont know if they are suitable.
Also platys are tropical fish and need warm water too.

Iv got 2 tanks at the moment i have 4 Platys and 2 Loaches( Just babies) so they are very small right now.

I moved 2 Platys from the 5 gal tank into the 20 gal tank. I put a filter in it two days ago and its been running since. I also have a heater, which iv heard isnt very good for loaches, im not sure on that.

I was thinking of getting 1 or 2 ,( correct me if im wrong) brittle nose fish the ones that mostly stay on the glass sucking algae away, similar looks to the pleco.
