hi
that's a shame,doesn't really surprise me though.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

do they compete for food,
or was it a totally ramdom attack,
my experience with YoYos is that
my other fish found them too boisterous
it caused problems between the clowns and the corydoras
so the loaches had to be moved.

I gather you have just the one clown and one yoyo loach? If that is the case then there is most of your problem. Yoyo's and clowns are a shoaling fish and it is recommended 5 as a minimum. Solo yoyo's can become aggressive.

The clown loaches are best kept in a 100 gallons minimum. These are very large fish and will need a lot of swimming space for stable growth. There is still a lot to learn about them. You have to rehome them in a bigger tank I'm afraid.;)
