Yea you should, I didn't add them on my tank for about 3 months, and all the leaves started getting brown, but I would recommend finding what plant it is, I'll help you out, because if it is an amazon sword, it needs root tabs, and if it is an Anubias nana, it will need liquid ferts

Yeah not a good idea. They like company as well, and a couple clowns in a 20 is a no no. When they are young its ok but they get pretty large. I have two in my 40b but I plan on rehoming them soon, I want them to go to a good home and not back to the store

Wow yea, no clown loaches, at least a 100 gallon is recommended, you could try dwarf chain loaches or my favorite, kuhli loaches

I know. He wanted a "sucker fish" but I got cut by a pleco's fin before so I won't buy them. Oh, and my plant is a melon sword plant.

You got cut by a plecos fin before? That's pretty odd, may I suggest some if the smaller pleco varieties such as bulldog pleco, bristle nose pleco, clown pleco, golden nugget, rio negro pleco, or in case you have $500 bucks laying around, a zebra pleco lol
Ok if it is an amazon sword, then you need root tabs, I get mine at petsmart, 10 tablets for 10 dollars, and each tablet lasts me about 3 months so its a good deal, later on if you want to add other plants like Anubias nana( highly recommended) or anacharis, then you might want to add liquid ferts, but for now just root tabs

Stream loaches are cold water fish, not suitable for tropical temperatures, they do better with cold water fish such as goldfish and dojo loaches
