Talking Im thinking of getting some new fish

Guys, i have in my 33 gallon tank
3 siamese algae eaters,
3 Kissing Gourami,
2 Gold Fish,
2 Albino Red-tail Sharks,
1 Female and a male Betta (they don't fight because the female always hides, even if i take the male out).

Can you give me a list of other fish that i can keep them with??
Would clown loaches be good?

the clown loaches would not be okay because they like groups and grow to be large. I bet some shrimp might look nice. I have some and they are fascinating. And maybe neons. Giving us your water parimeters would aloow us to make more precise suggestions

38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata

Your more immediate poroblem is getting rid of some of what you have, not adding more, unless a very large tank is planned soon. A 33g is much too small for fish that get as large (if healthy) as Kissing Gourami, Siamese Algae Eater, Red Tailed Shark, and goldfish. And goldfish should not be kept with tropicals.

Please have a look at the fish profiles here, second tab from the left in the blue bar at the top or click on the shaded name. For each species the info includes adult size, minimum tank sizes, numbers of the fish required, and suitable tankmates.

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

I agree with Byron you fish are going to get to big for the tank you have and goldfish do not like the warm temps the other fish need in order to be happy and healthy.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

How long you've had your tank up and running? I'm surprised the goldfish's ammonia hasn't killed any of the others. What temp are you keeping it? Goldfish liking colder water and Betta NEEDING warm, I'm kinda shocked they are all still alive to be honest.

I'm going to have to agree with the others, your tank is already much too small for what you have in it. Your fish would greatly benefit from a larger tank, and no more added.

Actually, fancy goldfish do well in temperature range of 72-78 degrees. Unlike the singletails, fancies are unable to tolerate cooler temperature. Unfortunately, the only fish that are absolutely compatible with goldfish are SAEs since these two can coexist peacefully assuming the goldfish in question are fancy varieties. Adult singletails may swallow SAEs if the SAEs are young.

If your goldfish are fancies, then a 33g will suit them well. Only 2-3 fancies can be accommodated. You need 10g allowance per goldfish.

Your tank is already overstocked. No clown loaches. They also prefer warmer water. It is not possible for you to combine them with goldfish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
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.
