Thinking of stocking the following

40 gal community tank with...

Red tail shark (1)
Gold Nugget Pleco (1)
Paradise Gourami (1)
Clown Loach (thinking school of 6) \ possible Laos mini dragon loach ?
Black Phantom Tetras (6-8)
Golden Dojo Loach (1-2)


But hey ! I'm open to some colorful suggestions as well.

An Angel wouldn't be out of the question but my tank is only 16" high and not sure if that's enough room, height wise or not.

Will not negotiate on the pleco or the Tetras just so ya know

in advance for your advice / suggestions !

Clown loaches get BIG and need at least a 150 gallon tank. If you like loaches I recommend sticking to dwarf chain loaches, as they stay much smaller and have just as dynamic personalities.

Edit: Also, make sure you add the red tail LAST, if at all. They tend to get pretty territorial towards other loaches, especially if the other loaches are added after they are.

Bummer on the clowns...I really liked the markings / color of them.
