What kind of tank do you want? A community? A couple fish? That would help.

Post a list of fish that you may be interested in and the folks out here will guide you along. You can do many different things with my favorite size tank--I have 9 of them.

Lol, from reading what your autocorrect didnt tamper with, cory cats need to be in larger shoals. African cichlids would not work, if you want cichlids you could consider shell dwellers or dwarf cichlids like rams, apistogramma, kribensis, etc.

What are the tank measurements of your tank?
What is your ph?
Also how long has the tank been up and running?
Whats your filtration and what is your temp?

Seriously? Already a clown loach and sailfin?

If you're going to add anything you may as well add what you want as you're overstocked to buggery anyway.

I would put at the most two in there, those guys are awesome, I had a few in a 55 at one point they do get to I believe 4-5 inches though, so I guess if you have it planted you can make it work. They're highly social fish.

I wouldnt do more than 2 with current stock. If I coukd be so bold I would recomend rehoming the pleco and loach now. Then you could get a bn pleco and 4 leaf fish probably.
