New to Forum...HELP!

I have a 12' bala shark (12+ yrs old) and 4" clown loach (13 yrs )old in 200 g tank. They've been in this tank for about their ages. Bala shark mates and clown loach mates have all died over time and they have been alone for about 6 mos. Recently the clown loach has been irritating the bala by poking it's barbs in the bala's nostril and the balas nostril is now califlower-like. Melafix added to tank 5 days ago. With age of respective fish, is it "smart" to add add'l fish or should I pull the loach - just don't want to cause him stress either. I have put no add'l fish in tank because it's a lot to maintain and I am interested in getting out of hobby, but I do not want to do wrong by either fish, since I've had them so long. If adding younger loaches is ok, I'd do that...

Adding new fish could be stressful for such old specimens... Perhaps you could find them a new home if you'd like to get out of the hobby.

Yes, I am very busy. So accept my apologies since I cannot visit this forum too much. But I'll do my best because I own this website Biggrin .
