What Do You Have...

...in your Loach tanks?
I've been away from this board for a while, and I just wanted to get caught up to speed with what others now have, and to share what I keep right now.
I know that many of you have multiple tanks. I used to have a whole house full of tanks. Now, I have only a 80 gal, and my daugher's 20.
Here's what I have in my 80 at this time:
8 B. sidthimunki (Although I'm now wondering if they really are sids -- because the chain pattern is beginning to break down on a few of them) They are 3 - 4", with one in the 4 1/2 - 5" TL range.
2 B. histrionica -- 3" TL
1 Parabotia maculosa?-- 3 1/2" TL
1 Leopard Spot Ctenopoma
4 True SAEs 4 - 4 1/2" TL
7 Scissortail Rasboras
2 Freshwater Butterfly Fish
3 Corydoras sterbai -- 2 1/2" TL
1 Shistura savona (See Martin's River Tank article)
1 Synodontis alberti
If you've noticed, I keep black, white, brown, and gray fish. I always have...and I don't know why! :-) I will get colorful ones upon occasion, but always end up with "interesting personalities" instead of outward color. Sheesh!
I was looking for schooling fish a couple of weeks back. I looked at all the schooling fish in the LFS and ended up with Scissortails!!! I just love their movement. Not jerky or fright-like, but smooth and calming. They also can get up to 6" in length, which is an advantage with a Ctenopoma, which will swallow smaller fish.
What do other keep with their loaches?
