I went with the Yo-yos ;)

My water was offically declared cycled, so I purchased 5 loaches. 2 small clowns, and 3 yo-yos. I was hemming and hawing between them and the striatas, but I got them. I'm glad I did, too. Already I love all 3, and their personalities, so much. I dropped a spirulina disk in to see what all 5 new fish would do, and the clown I had originally hogged it all. 2 of the yo-yos snuck over to it when the clown wasn't there and were nibbling on it. One of the new clowns did, too.

I named the 3 yo-yos Lock, Shock and Barrel (after the three trick-or-treaters in the Nightmare Before Christmas). Barrel is quiter, and likes hiding in leaves of the plants. Lock and Shock are having a great time, cruising around and exploring. All 3 clowns and the yo-yos like to school together.
