when can I add some yoyo's to this tank
currenttly have a 55 gallon tank. It was cycled with 6 tiger barbs for 2 weeks, and I just added 3 more tiger barbs and a red tailed black shark. I only want to add one more group of fish and thats some yoyo loaches about 3-5 of them. Was just wondering how long should i wait for the yoyo's.
As long as your ammonia and nitrites are zero, then you can proceed to adding them. Good luck with the yoyos.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.

If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
You understand that yoyos are going to get 5" long each? That said, I'd give it another 2 or 3 weeks before adding anything else. With a tank just cycled, and more fish just added, I'd test for a couple of days to make sure that the nitrobacter is up to the task and make sure I didn't get an ammonia spike.
Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
yoyos really like tight fitting caves. i was in for a shock when i first put two in my tank, they hid inside a fake piece of drift wood that was not really ment for hiding in. i had to find suitable things for them. then they were really fun. i know you are supposed to keep them in small groups, but i did fine with two. 3 wouldn't be too high of a bio load. and they mix great with tiger barbs. just read up on feeding them as well..i had some issues there since tigers eat in a frenzy, it was difficult to keep them away from the pellets i dropped in for them.
