Some people have success keeping mollies and bettas, others don't. They can be nippy and have big bioload. They also live longer, happier lives in brackish water rather than totally fresh, which cories especially can't tolerate.

Loaches are great! In a 20 gallon, I would go with kuhlis. I'm going to have loaches in my 20 gallon! :)

So in a 20 gallon tank: 7 female bettas, 6 cories, and 3 loaches?

how does that sound?


Are you starting a community tank as well?

Clown loaches get way too big and are far too active for a 20 gallon. Plus, all loaches are schoolers, so you want at least 6. For clown loaches, that would mean a 100 gallon tank. Speaking of schools, you could have your 7 girls, 6 cories and 10 kuhli loaches no problems. :) The more kuhlis you have, the more you will see of them. Less than 5 and you'll never see them. They'll just hide all the time.

Yea as other posters mentioned, Clown loaches get huge!

If you want them to thrive and live to old age, 100+ gallons minimum

Okay so I went to petsmart today to buy a heater and I was just admiring some fish. I noticed that they have different types of cories. Can i mix and match or do they all have to be one type. Some were albino, other were called green, and there was one that was black with white dotes I forgot the name

I heard that green and albino come from the same family. I could be wrong but I would still stay with the same species. The one your talking about must he the peppered.
