Hi from the latest newbie!

Just getting addicted. About a year ago my husband and I set up our 10 gal. tropical community and just today we upgraded to a 20 high. Looking for some fish advice since I'm hoping to add some more variety to our tank.

My tank is a freshwater tropical community. Current count is 2 algae eaters, one silver molly, one loach might be a dojo, and around 8 platys. Have three amazon swords that are doing well. My platys are multiplying like crazy and I would like to add a few more fish to make my tank a little more interesting. Have dark gravel and these cool led lights from Petsmart. One is green, one white, one blue. Aimed to highlight my sad little features. I hope to keep increasing tank size as me and my husband can afford and as we get better at caring for harder to maintain fish and plants.

First thing I notice about your stocking list is only 1 loach. I am far far from being an expert but I have heard over and over again that loaches need to be in groups. They have a social structure. I am guessing some of the loach people will come on soon and maybe encourage you to get a few more of the same species of loach.

Welcome to the forum! Can't wait to see pictures of your tanks and hear much more about your fish. Be careful of this addiction, it is crazy how it grows. I have 2 tanks also and am forever buying more stuff.

Dojo loaches can do fine solo, but they are a "temperate" species and prefer cooler water than other "tropical" fish. They also grow larger than a 20 gl can comfortably accomodate this type of loach. Cheerfulmelody (great user name!), maybe you can take a look at the profile for this fish and positively ID the loach you have?

Edit: I see in another thread where Cheerfulmelody identified her loach as a kuhli. I must get caught up on reading threads before I start posting away...

Welcome to the forum.I see the fish keeping is not the full blown addiction yet,you upgraded your 10G rather than buy an additional tank
Good luck with the new tank,and dont forget to post pics..we love pics :)
