If your dad likes all those fish, I'd suggest something like 8-10 barbs, 8-10 black skirts, 1 rainbow shark, and 3-4 modesta.
those loaches look a lot like a rainbow shark,id be worried theyed get picked on pretty bad

But would that be too many fish for the tank?

Okay now I'm hijacking my own thread... But since I'm going to be moving my cories put of my 8 gallon tank into my dads 55 gallon tank which fish should I get? They need to be easy to find and not cost a lot (under 10 dollars per fish). Also Endler's are out, mom vetoed them...

We have a store around here that sells them for like 12ish dollars and she refuses to spend, or let me spend money on them. Also I've tried my betta with the cories and he hated them so I doubt the betta + other fish won't work...

You could try a tank with celestial pearl danios for the top, shrimp for the bottom and a sparkling gourami as a centerpiece. JMO.

No. Sparkling gouramis are about the size of my thumb approximately the last time I saw them at an LFS and like their own company, believe it or not.

Oh, ok. Thanks a bunch! Also my parents keep changing their mind so I might get to keep my 55 gallon tank and my dad might get his own but I'm guessing that this might keep changing but idk!
