I should have been more specific about the clown loach when I made mention of them. I'll be honest, in part it is a ploy on my part to have an excuse to get a several hundred gallon tank in a year or so.
If you have a 40g+ tank now though, like I do, you could house a couple of these loaches as long as you plan on expanding your tank when they get to be 5-6" in size.
All that I have read about the fish is that they grow pretty slow so if you start with them small, you'll almost have to unless you want to shell out serious money to buy one of any size, you can enjoy them for a while in a smaller tank size.
If my plan backfires and I am not able to get a much larger tank, there is always the local fish store who would love to buy a 6" clown from me or give me credit for him.
