Gudgeons and monkey loaches
Hello, I am looking to add fish to a new 29 G. tank. I've had 6 zebra danios in it for a month. I'm considering adding gudgeons and monkey loaches/ botias. A couple of questions:
What are the differences between goo obo and peacock gudgeons?
Is one easier than the other to keep? More "personable?"
Are they solitary/ do they like to school? Are the territorial w/ their own kind/ what's a good number to have?
Would they be a threat to any shrimp I may add to the aquarium? Would they be compatible w/ the loaches? Would the botias be a threat to the shrimp?
Are both types of fish going to compete for the bottom of the tank? Can they coexist?
My impression is that all 3 types of fish are realitively easy to keep and peaceful--any other thoughts or experiences?
What have I forgotten to ask? :? :shock: :lol:
Tanks for bearing with me and for all the help.

What are these "monkey loaches"?:? I always hate common names.
yeah, it's also known as a chain loach. It's been called a "dwarf" in some of the literature. The species name in the binomial nomenclature starts w/ an "S" and is Looong.
I thought I posted this last night. It is the Sidthemunki loach, a dwarf loach. It is the smallest of the loaches. here is a link.
