Do Clown Loach eat plants? I would say no is that correct?

They won't eat your aquarium plants, but if you put some zuccini or or cucumber they will love it.

I have kicked around with the thought of planting my loach tank but they tear into lettuce when I put it in the tank for the silver dollars so don't know for sure. I think they eat everything.

I just copied this off a site on the net:

(I have three of these ludicrous fish and they are great favourites. They are really active and they are the focal point of our lush planted aquarium. And that is the problem - they are merciless plant destroyers and they do it for fun as they do everthing.)

Try plants that are tough and fast growers.

I've got 6 in my heavily planted tank and they seem to leave the plants alone.

I have never fed them vegetables either - so they may have no idea that plants can be tasty!

They don't usually eat plats. To be safe keep them well fed.
