Welcome! You need to rehome the clown loaches ASAP, they grow quite large and require more than one.

Welcome to the forum, this is an excellent place to become educated in the ways of aquarium keeping!

This is true, but lacks a little background. Clown loach's can reach 12+ and ideally should be put in a 75+ aquarium. Must big box pet stores fail to pass this on as they want to make a sale. All loachs should be in a group of at least 5 or more to maintain a healthy life. These little guys have quite a personality and you will truly see this when they are in a group. Failing to make this change will most likely stunt the growth of the fish and lead to a short life term.

You have an extremely nice aquarium and we look forward to seeing more pics as it changes with time!

Glad to have you. Welcome. Prepare to be amazed at what there is to know about creatures (and plants) in water!!! It is crazy unbelievable, some of the things I thought I knew, but didn't! LOL

BTW silver dollars can become the size of a plate! Beware how big some of these little guys can get.

Would you be interested in making your own? There is some great ideas in the DIY sub-forum. If not, go to a search engine and type in what you want. Finally you could check the classifieds sub-forum, might get lucky!

Alternative selection...

If you like the silver dollars, check out diamond tetra, similar look, and nice fish and stays small.

Have fun and enjoy!
