I'm lookkng to set up a loach tank but all I have to use is a 3' , 40gallon breeder tank. I think this could work because I have a powerhead for circulation and a good filter too. I have never kept loaches before so I thought it might be wise to seek the advice of someone who has experience. Thanks

All depends on the species of loach It's certainly large enough for the small species, like the dwarf chain and kuhlis. Assuming the tank is 18 inches wide, the largest I would keep are zebras.

I'd get at least 10. No special care really - just sand for substrate is all.
