How long have you had them, they sometimes take some settling in, but then become active, mine are always out playing with the clown loaches, or just laying against a rock or log asleep in full view.

hey mitcore,
i have two small pakistarni loaches (yoyo loaches), mine are really quite active but they needed a week or two to settle in but i also have 4 clown loaches for them to play with. ive been trying to find some more yoyos so my two would have a bigger school but as yet no luck. they seem happy enough with the clowns. maybe just wait and see if they settle in but if they dont just get a couple more loaches (either clowns or more yoyos- i dont think it matters to much), well thats what id do anyways :11:

I would not recomend clowns unless you have a very large tank, though slow growing, they can reach 1ft, yoyos on the other hand, reach about half that size.

no worries they are in my big 4 ft (250 litres) so i think that might be bigger enough for the clown loaches
