Hello, Just joined the forum, so I thought I would introduce myself and my tanks.
My name is Adrian, I have two tanks set up at the moment. 1 is a 520 liter planted tank, stock includes,
9 Denison barbs
9 Dwarf neon Rainbows
6 Zebra loach
1 Starlight bristle nosed plec
1 Gold spot goby
The tank is filtered by an all pond solutions 2000EF+
Lighting is 2.4 watts per gallon, stepped on and off for a period of 8 hour.
Water is PH 6.5 and kept around 23c
tank 2 is a 120 liter planted tank.
Filtered with an all pond solutions 1000EF+
4 Galaxy rasbora
1 peacock goby
Water is as above.
I have kept fish for many years in the past but have been away from the hobby for 10 years.
i am now back with a vengeance.
Any advice for adding tank mates or increasing stock in tank 1 would be appreciated.

tanks look good if still a bit "new".
What confuses me though is your mention of a "gold spot goby" in your large tank!? To the best of my knowledge, the "gold spot goby" is Gnatholepis thompsoni and that would be a caribbean marine species?
P.S. Would you know what plant species you have on the extreme left (as you look at the pic) in the large tank?

Hi Adrian and welcome to the site! Personally I'd be tempted to add more D. margaritatus to the second tank - they seem to do much better in larger groups.
The loach behaviour sounds quite normal - did you introduce them recently and are they Botia striata?
