can you tell the sex of clown loaches,i heard its to do with there shape,i have got several and it would be nice if i could find out how many girls and boys i have,

the male is slightly smaller and more slender than the female, although this isn't always obvious. It's very hard to tell male and female with clowns. Just take a guess, 50% chance of being right! :thumb:

when they start getting big you'll be able to tell because the girls get much larger, males stay thin
