so what did i decide on?

Hey everyone!
I'm back from pacific with my new fish. I had my water tested just to make sure the numbers I got here at home. The good news is my water is perfect. I bought some balloon rams 3 panda Cory to go with the 2 I have. O also pied up 3 fish that I have no idea what they are but they are really cool. They look like little flounder but they stick to the glass I guess they are great for algae. Just called pacific they are called hillstream loach

I think the hillstreams prefer cooler?, fast moving highly oxygenated waters

Thanks vivadawolf I googled them and I also saw that. I'm concerned but they reassured me as long as I had good flow they should be fine. Today they were all over the place eating everything in site. I'm going to keep my eyes on them if at any point they don't seem happy ill find them a new home
