This weekend I picked up 5 more 1-2 inch Clown Loaches! That brings the count up to 10! I'll get a few pics of the little guys tonight! :19:

WOW 10 clowns... must be an amazing sight!! How big is your tank? I have always wanted to keep them but have never had a tank larger than 150 Gallons.

Right now they are in a 75 with a few of my Severums. They range in size from 1" to 5". We are eventually going to be setting up a much larger tank for the Sevs and Loaches. it's a very fun tank to watch!

Hi,
That is great. IMO I would get a tank around 150++ gallons for them all.

Thanks! For the time being, they have more than enough space and the filtration/water change schedule they are on can easily support them. Also...Clown Loaches have such a slow growth rate that they will not be outgrowing it any time soon. I have a specimen that is over a year old and not even 3" yet.

They are so cute. Thanks for the pics, mate.
And thumbs up for having the sand. I wish I can find sand for my tanks.
Yes that is a great ting with the Clowns they are slow growers.

Mac go to your local diy store and invest in some play sand, it's a really
cheap option, it's safe and your fish will appreciate it.

Great pick up's, nothing as entertaining as a group of clowns and you are
gonna have so much fun with 10, best of luck with them!

Thanks for the comments! I think baby Clown loaches are some of the cutest fish! They love sifting through the sand for food and i've even seen them bury themselves in the sand...very fun to watch. They all love raw Scallops, Shrimp, pellets, and algae wafers.

I got 5 clowns about 4 -5 inches. Had them a little over a year now. Great scavengers and fun to watch.
