hi all
i have recently aquired 1 clown loach but there will be two or three more in the near future(the one i have was the last one left). i was wondering what i should feed him he gets bloodworms and tropical flakes but i was wondering what else i can feed to him, is there anything they especially like??

Botia are terribly fond of worms. White, Grindel and sutibly sized red worms (bait shops have them) are favorites. All three are easily cultured. They also enjoy insect larvae, like mosquito, and small crustaceans like Daphnia.
All should be given no more than thrice a week. A quality pelleted food would be staple, frozen and live foods a treat.
