The dwarf chain loaches ,or Kuhli loaches would be my choice.
YoYo loaches would get too large ,(5 inches) and they would appreciate more room than the 26 gal.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

My choice would be Botia Striata, very active and fairly small. Kuhli Loaches are good too but you tend not to see much of them, I'd be tempted to get both.

There is info on these fish in our profiles section; you can click on the shaded name in posts, or use the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the screen.

Botia striata needs a 4-foot tank and a group of 5 or more; the weather loach attains a foot in length and will eat other smaller fish and needs cooler temps.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
