I'm going to have to research that point a bit further, about loaches and long-fin fish. It was raised in some authoritative sites I used when compiling the profiles, but my experience is the same as Lisa's, at least with Botia kubotai.

This is one of the difficulties in writing fish profiles. You want to be accurate, and sometimes fish of a certain species may exhibit traits that are abnormal. Do you mention the abnormality and risk scaring everyone away from what is probably a perfect fish for that environment? Or not mention it, and then someone posts a problem with this or that fish nipping fins when the profile doesn't say it will. Can't win.

I think I am just a little paranoid after having fish that didn't get along and ending in 2 dead fish because of it. I definitely do not want to go down that path again. I like the idea of the loaches because I would like to see a bit more activity at the bottom of the tank. I do not want that if it means risking my Blue Gourami.

Tiger Barbs as I later learned are not supposed to be so great with Gourami either and mine have not been a problem. In fact, my Gourami swims around in their little pack and monitors their ill behavior. It sort of seems like an older more mature sister or something. ha ha

I wish my Rainbow shark could get along with someone else because it is such a cool fish. Not to mention, lovely.
