    Default Aggressive clown loaches = no food for the other fish

    I'm trying to figure out what to do.

    I have a "community" tank with Discus. I feed primarily frozen foods: Bloodworm, brine, beef heart. Every time I feed, my 2 clown loaches wind up taking the food and chowing it all down, while my discus are trying to figure out where the food is at. I've tried staggering a feeding schedule but it never fails; the loaches always eat the bulk of the food and it's getting very frustrating. Before I give up and get rid of the loaches, does anyone have a suggestion on how to deal with this?

    Thanks

    Rich

    rehoming/returning the loaches is probably the best option, sorry

    I don't think there's much you can do except for maybe dividing the tank in half with a divider if you really want to keep them.
