I am not exactly new to aquariums, but im new to these pleasent little loaches. I have raised and taken care of cichlids, which is the fish i was introduced to. I must say I have lost interest in my cichlids, Ive had electric yellows, cobalt blues, all sorts. I also have a neat catfish that cichlids like! :-) but i just got done setting up my 20 gall, I want to sell my cichlids and my catfish so that I can buy loaches and tetras and the like. What do you suggest? I really want fish that are FUN! I heard weather loaches were REALLY cool and so were clown loaches. Please give me some advice, thank you.

BTW: I would put my catfish in the 20 gall but its too big and would prolly eat schooling fishes.
