Talking Hi, new here, have a question or two.....

Hi,
I'm Zipzap, named after my two Zebra fish, Zip and Zap. I recently got these two cuties, plus three Tetras and three kuhili (however you spell that) loaches.

They are all in a twenty gallon tank which I found on Craigslist. I am thinking of getting more fish, maybe a little larger fish too.

I was thinking maybe on some ghost shrimp. Would they go well with my loaches or would they get eaten?
What are some great species to go with my current fishies, besides other tetras?
Thank you and I love this site!!!!!

-Zipzap

I've tried a few different loaches and aside from my hillstream they have all hunted my shrimp. I've never tried a kuhli loqch yet so they may be different.. I'm not sure about them. As for some new tank mates a small school of harlequin rasboras would be a nice addition.

Kuhli loaches shouldn't pose any threat to shrimp, none of mine have. I've kept my kuhlis with bamboo, red cherry, and ghost shrimp.

Thank you. I may try a couple Ghost Shrimps, and see how well my loaches go with them.
