55gal tank. How often?

I have. 55gal tank with 2 55/75filters 400gph each. Te tank has been up with fish in it x 3 weeks, 5 zebra danio, 5 harlequin raw Oreos and 4 Oto. I am picking up 5 kuhli's loaches tomorrow, how long should you wait to add more fish?

What are the parameters? Only then will you know when a water change is needed and when you can add new fish. If its only been running with fish for 3 weeks then its most likely still cycling.

So I guess I should hold off on the loaches tomorrow?

Depends on what your water parameters are tbh. Is your tank cycled?
