Still need tank size...

Hope it is big because of the clown loaches. They are schooling (5+), and get large (12"). Without a school and large enough tank, they often turn aggressive as they get older. They should really be in a 6ft tank (100g, 125g, 150g, 180g).

The only tank in your profile is 50 Liters which is only about 13 gallons .... if that's the tank we are talking about you are way beyond grossly overstocked!

I was going to suggest Angelfish, but they would get stressed by the clown loaches. Slow, placid fish like to be with other slow placid fish. Active fish will cause them stress.

Several catfish get that large, and larger.

A Redtail Cat gets over 4.5 feet long...

Perhaps read this thread, and the article linked within: Cautions on "large" fish
