    i was thinking about getting some clown loaches to add to my tank because i have way too much snails the i tried assassin snails but even they couldnt control the snails but i have shrimp in the tank. it seems like a stupid question but will they eat my shrimps?

    What size is your tank? A Clown Loach can get up to 12" long.

    no worries im fully aware of how big they get. that is one of the reasons why im interested in them. once big enough they will be going into my 115gal but as of right now im looking to start them in my 55gal. but instead of getting off track by questioning me lets get back to the main reason this post started. so will 2-3 inch clown loaches be a treat to my dwarf shrimps?

    I had a few shrimps in my clown loach growout tank and as best as I could tell the loaches leave them alone. Can't promise that would always be the case, though.

    Interestingly, I got my loaches in two batches. The first batch did not seem interested in snails but the second batch cleaned them up.
    300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
    125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
    75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
    60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish
