    I have two 6" ones in a 3ft tank and one bullies the other a lot so it's always scratched.

    I've always heard minimum of five for best results, however, I had one all by himself for years, and he always seemed happy, and lived longer than I had him. (I gave him to a friend). I now have another loach by himself, and he's doing great. I don't think they need to school as bad as some other fish. They won't die, they'll just be a little less happy than one with friends.

    Y'all should know that clowns are by far the largest of the common loach species, with more than a foot, up to perhaps 16 inches, their adult size. It takes years to get to those sizes, but get to them they do. They have years to burn as well, with 25 years in captive care not unusual.

    Botia-type loaches are like South American Corydoras catfish as it's the more the merrier with them. Minimum school I have of Botia species is 12 and they are endlessly entertaining in such groups, clicking madly in play or when food is added.
