First get the tank cycled,begin testing for ammonia.Hint: it will take a few days or even a week to begin showing up. It will take 4 to 6 weeks to cycle the tank. During this time you should only do one tiny feeding a day. Also cold water tanks take longer to cycle than warmer ones,so be patient. When you get your tank ready to support more fish there are some very interesting Loaches that come from cold water environment that would make good tank mates for your White Clouds. Some specific names would be Kuhlii Loach or Weatherfish or Weather Loach, Horse Face Loach,more.
