Thanks all :)

In the first photo, in addition to the 3 loaches in the photo, there are two more Red Tail Sand Loaches and 3 Horseface Loaches.
The Horsefaces are always buried in the sand, but I do see them at feeding time ;) There is also a school of 13 Cardinal Tetras.

In the "Blue Gravel 100 Gallon Tank" I have 5 clown loaches, 1 yoyo, 1 Histrionica, 3 Berdmorei, 1 Orange Fin Blue Botia and a Beauforti Loach.
The rest of the fish are South Americans like Severums and Tetras. There are two species of large barbs, some Parkinsoni Rainbows as well as several dwarf plecos.

I have two more Clown Loaches in a tank with 2 species of Geophagus eartheaters, 6 Bleeding Heart Tetras, a long fin albino bristlenose pleco and a regular brown one.

The 7 Dwarf Chain loaches are in a tank with 7 species of Barbs and 2 species of Danios, they are the only loaches in that tank.

I have another community tank with a yoyo, a kubotai and 2 Striata Loaches ... I think there are some Kuhli Loaches in there too but I have not seen them for some months now ...

I will try to get some more photos over the next few weeks :)

Some year, I would like to setup a hillstream tank :D

Thank you :)

I am always on the lookout for new Loach species to me ;)

I am always suggesting that Local Fish Stores check their source's fish listings for new species of Loaches and order them in to take a look :)
