Tank inhabitants.....any good?

Hi guys,

I've got a nice new 4ft tank loosely based on an asian river theme, although more densely planted than would be normal for that theme...

I currently have 6 kuhli loach in the tank and I have 6 mixed rasboras, 6 cherry barbs and a red-finned shark to move in there. I am also thinking of adding either Clown loach or Botia Striata, probably 4 of them...

Does this sound ok? I know the clowns would eventually outgrow the tank, but that isn't a major problem, I'm thinking they'd be fine for a year or so?

Thanks in advance for any comments... Matt
