Sounds like a nice mix of fish, evie. The Zebra Loaches will be fine with gravel - mine "snuffle" through it all the time. Add three though as that's the minimum recommended number. They're great fun to watch especially when they play Follow The Leader...Wink

Also, be sure to add the Neon Tetras a few months down the line as they're quite sensitive to water chemistry and need a mature filter. The rest you can add once the cycle is complete. Not long now. Smile

Good list of fish too, but you might want to check that you dont have too many - it looks a long list for 160litres

well done evie, good to hear that you have finished. dont forget to keep dosing the tank till you get your fish, and do a massive water change before adding them to the tank.
