That zebra loach is cool!
I only have ONE clown loach in my 20g tank...I just read about them on that same site you just linked to and it showed HUGE ones! It also said they should be in at least groups of 5...Uh oh. Now that we've been discussing all this, I almost want to abandon the cichlid idea altogether and go for more tropicals! I could get 4 more clowns and transfer my current one into the larger tank, and get some gouramis...
What do you think? I don't actually have any cichlids yet, and there are so many cool possibilities...
Bird? Any thoughts on cichlids vs. tropicals?
