    I haven’t kept clown loaches before but would imagine they’d be compatible. Corys are very peacefull.
    Some cory species need water on the slightly cooler side; and some eg the c. Aeneus (including my bronze corys), Sterbai and Julii are great for normal temp of most tropical community style tanks

    I got that info from TFFUK, the first international forun I joined.

    I've never kept clownloaches with Corys as a coryfanatic but several members there had. As I recall correctly it were mainly Clowns that get irritated / annoyed.
    There was always advised against it.

    Time for me to put some of the vinegar eels in a Corona bottle (pardon the pun) :D

    Think the danios are the biggest risk for the fry but hopefully some make it especially with the vinegar eels and dense vegetation.

    Might also be cool if a couple of cory eggs fall in between the rocks and fry survive, although this happens very rarely - the eggs get eaten chop chop.

    Nice thing about this tank is that it’s kind of like an indoor pond, just not mature enough yet...

    I love my Danios but they are quite feisty/inquisitive aren't they. Like little Jack Russels.

    agreed - the perfect number of tanks is n+1 where n = the number of tanks you currently have

    Yeah that's the right math-formula in our hobby. A shame some familymembers aren't familiar with this scientific proven formula.
