I think that you have one of the Corydoras Catfish...They do better in groups, but one will live ok if it gets enough food...The Loaches are aggressive feeders and may bully the catfish when feeding on the bottom....You will have to watch to make sure your catfish gets it's share of food...I have found that putting a little food on the bottom after the lights are out is good for the little cats....The bigger aggressive feeders are usually "sleeping" and the bottom feeding cats can find the food in peace....Try some small sinking pellets.........................Make sure that you don't over do it as uneaten food will soon cause water condition problems.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
