You already have them? Well these fish don't take up to much space you may want to get some extra filtration and should still be fine

Sounds good you might be able to fit in a few black khuli loaches and maybe some snails if you want

Most of the time they are all over the place they like to hang on the leaves of plants and in holes of decorations they will dig under the gravel and chase each other I think everything would be fine.


Just don't forget to get some more filtration
