If you review the profile of the clown pleco you will see that they grow to 3-4 inches - while it is true that a tank of "three feet or longer" is suggested, the footprint of the OP's tank is very near to that (30x18x12). They really are not a big fish at all.

Thank you for the correction -- I had googled it to check dimensions and made the mistake of just using the first result rather than double checking any other sources.

Are you wanting to add just either/or - and will this be the only species you add to the current stock?

Yea either or. I wanted to add 6 khuli loaches also but if I can't have both I'd rather have a large school.

My first question is to do with the Bolivians. When you say three, what sex are they? Because I would not have more than either 1 lone fish (male or female) or a bonded pair in a 3-foot tank. These are peaceful fish, esp for a cichlid, but not together.

Related to this same fish, if you have male/female, do you intend raising fry? Because with any nocturnal and/or substrate fish (like the loaches) you willnever have eggs or fry survive. Just so you know.

Aside from the initial Ram issue--which is very significant--the glowlights or neons would likely be OK. These are both lower-water fish, though, as is the Ram, so you would be putting everything in the same are, close to the substrate. You might want to look into upper fish to balance.
