in my opinion you could get the loaches in that tank with the goldfish. i definitely advise getting 2, as just one will get lonely and become shy and spend the whole time hiding. if there are 2 thay are very active though.

Does anyone recommend a specific pairing? Meaning should I get 2 males, 2 females, 1 male + 1 female, or doesn't it matter?Also, can I mix golden dojos with regular dojos? I love the look of the golden ones, but the place I found them charges twice as much for one. What have you guys found the average price on dojos to be (golden and regular)

if i remember right 8.99 for golden dojo's by me.

I just pick the liveliest ones out and take them, not sure how to tell the sex of them.
they are ok alone, pair up with a 2nd and school with 3+ or atleast that is what I am observing with mine

Thanks for the great info. I found a place that has regular ones for $3.99 but doesn't carry the golden ones. I think I'm going to just go with the regular unless the other place in town can order the golden ones for a decent price. At a petstore about 40 mins from where I live the golden ones are $12.99 & the regular are $6.99, so I'm happy to find the local store has them for cheaper.

are they big or small? as in total size as adults.

I think you might be better off with the kuhli loaches, you can fit a few more in there and they are neat to watch, so small yet so smart and fast.

I'm worried about the temperature with kuhli loaches. if I raise the temp to accomodate them, my goldfish will suffer. and if I lower the temp (or rather leave it without a heater) then the kuhlis suffer.

74 degrees is the magic goldfish temp number.

Ex used to keep fancies, the ugly ugly ones( i dont like goldfish) that cost more then comets and she did alot of reading on goldfish and community tanks and nearly everything said 74 was good, she kept it at 74 and the thing is very healthy and energetic, never stops moving.

Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. My friend is bringing his extra aquarium sand and a heater over for me on sunday, so I plan on setting things up then.
