Loach Stew! Yum Yum!

In my 80 right now:
5 B. histrionica, 4 B. sidthimunki, 3 B. dario, 3 Leptobotia guilinensis, 2 Clowns (4-5" size), 1 B. striata.
Also, "FOL" (Friends of Loaches)
9 SAEs, 5 Corydoras sterbai (quite large, beautiful!), 1 Red-tailed Sternella Pleco, and 1 Male Betta.
Like Cinder, I've observed that the B. histrionicas do not seem to have a need to school. The dario and sidthimunki will school occasionally (species specific). However, with the mix I have, there is lots of interaction among the various loaches, which in my book is really great to see. I'm hoping to get at least 5 of each Botia-type that I have now, and get more species to add to what I already have. I plan on having botias no more aggressive than the Yo Yo.
