Location = MYOB.
So I guess I'll mind my own business.

More Kuhli Loaches for a start. Aim for 5-6 as a minimum and carry on from there.
So many species of fish yet so little time, space and money to keep them all...

What size tank, what style of filter (how many gallons per hour), is the tank planted... and similar questions.

Kuhlie Loaches are social fish that thrive in water that is on the warmer side of average, somewhat acidic and moderate to soft.
This describes the preferred conditions for many Tetras, Rasboras and some Danios, if the tank is large enough.

A mixed tank with something at the top, perhaps a Gourami, something in the middle, perhaps a school or Rasboras and more Kuhlies for the bottom would work well. This would be a tank of at least 20 gallons, and closer to 30 would be better.

Here is an 'all Asian' tank. 20 gallons= smaller fish and fewer. 29 would be the full list.
(1) Pearl Gourami OR (1-2) Honey Gourami
(6-12) Harlequin Rasboras
(5-6) Kuhlie Loaches.
38 tanks, 2 ponds over 4000 liters of water to keep clean and fresh.

Happy fish keeping!
