My 8g hex tank stocked.

Hi

Yesterday i went to petsmart, yes, i said petsmart . I picked up a powder blue dwarf gourami(picture 1), and 2 black kuhli loaches( one of them in picture 2). Then, the fish person asks me, "hey do you want some free snails!?". So she gives me like 20 baby mystery snails(last picture), some of which i will sell.(PM me if interested.) So how does my tank look? Is there anything I should add, Plant or fish or invert?

Well, gouramis need 30+ gallons and kuhill loaches need 50 gallons of water. Those fish are adequate for your tank.

Not true , Dwarfs can live in a 5g if needed but not recommend, but the min I recommend is a 10 g for both species, they can live there for now but I would upgrade in the future. Sorry to disagree

Not problem at all, I made a mistake about the dwarf gourami but still they will need to be re-home soon. Anything else can't be added to the tank though.
