Going to try again

I hope this memo finds everyone well..

I was a frequent visitor to this site the last time I tried raising clown loaches. They are by far my favorite fish, BUT I have a few struggles with Ich the last go around and have taken a few months off.

I'd like to start again with a dedicated tank for the loaches. Here's my question. Would a 20 gallon tank be large enough to start with? How many would you recommend? What filter do you recommend for a tank that size? I currently have a 55 gallon with an emporer and a Magnum 350. I'd rather go with a HOB for this one if it would keep it clean enough.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated...
