Hi julie - glad things are working out in your tank now!

Most botia species do like company but its company of their own species that they like. Your yoyo loaches probably wouldnt thank you for a different type of loach for company. Although they may get on well together, they would, in most cases, appreciate 2 or 3 more of their own species.

Considering the sizes that some of your fish are going to grow to, it sounds as if your current tank may be getting to its limit - if the plec you have is a common plec then itll need that 4ft-er to itself in time! You mentioned getting a 6ft tank in time so you have room to play with if thats your plan - personally Id move
