Cichlids and Loaches Continued...

Hello! As you may know I am soon getting a 55 gallon tank! I figured out I would like some loaches (not clowns) with a ph of 7. What are some colorful cichlids whose max size is 6 inches, and that are compatible with loaches. What loaches grow big enough to be with the cichlids who may want a snack?

Most of the more peaceful medium sized south american/central american cichlids will ignore the loaches as long as they aren't so small they can swallow them whole. As for specific species of cichlids are you looking for a single centerpiece cichlid or a small group of cichlids that can live together?

I want peaceful colorful South American cichlids. Could you post pictures of loaches that would be okay with them?
