Yoyo loach

Am picking up a uses 3ft tank tomorrow and have been offer some of the current inhabitants. Three 7" plecs, a 4" red fin shark and two 1.5-2" yoyo loaches. I have had to decline the plecs and shark, as I can't house them in my 17 gallon for the time being until the 3ft is up and running in a month or two. However I am intrigued by the loaches. Will they be ok for a couple of months living with red eye tetras and platies until the new tank is ready for them?

I was just a bit worried they might be aggressive towards other fish. I will take them and see how I go.

I loved my yoyos. They are a perfect species for a community tank. It's a good think you turned down the plecos and the shark as even your larger tank would not have provided them with a proper environment.

I know I've seen a pic of them in the tank I'm getting and they dwarf everything in it...even the filter! Hopefully the man will find them a good home, or for all I know they might end up in the river Humber!
