Hi all, sorry if this is in the wrong place.
Being given a fish tank from a family member who cannot look after them any more, with the following fish in (over 3+ years together):
1 clown loach
3 golden barb
1 pleco
1 rose tetra
2 silver dollars

I love guppies.. Is it possible to add a number of guppies to this group? And if so, how many is a good amount?

The tank’s approx 115 litres, I don’t want to cause problems with them!

If you want to add new fish you will want to wait a few weeks and be attentive to the water levels. If they are ok you could add a couple of guppies, But if the parameters are to high you probably shouldn't as it will create bad living conditions for the fish.

Clown loach and pleco will grow to maybe 12 inches in case you are not aware. Is it a "common pleco" and are you certain it's a clown loach and not another kind of loach?

Do you know if you will be providing hard or soft water?

Just work with what you have got. Get used to looking after them and enjoy. There are a number of issues. But at the moment just enjoy your new tank. Later we can help you with suggestions to make things better.
