I NEED SOME HELP EVERYONE!!!
So last night my two clown loaches were like glued together in one spot. Just like best friends you know? So this morning I couldnt find them and than i found one coming out of a shell. But i cant find the other one. I picked up the shell and turned it upside down to see if he was in there but nothing happened. He may just not want to come out. And he wouldnt of jumped out of the tank. I checked every single spot in the tank where he could be. And if he died i would find him, he's not small like a tetra.....I'm freaking out?!!!!!!!!!

Oh they are so cute Nick! I want to see more pics :D
Just keep looking, they are very good hiders. Look in all the plants and rocks and shells, behind the filter, etc.
My clown likes to eat snails and fish flakes. He doesn't like algae wafers at all, I've never had a clown that liked algae wafers But give 'em lots of snails, the little ones that don't grow into anything good enough to keep. They only grow up to about 1/2 cm. I don't know the name of them, but I'm sure Blue will

Well....one came out this morning for like a few hours and I picked up the shell that it came out of to find the other one and i put it upside in the tank and sort of shook it around the other one didnt come out. It might just be in there not wanting to come out. And than earlier the other clown went back in it.....I fed my fish flakes this morning and they didnt eat. I dont no what to do im panicking. I think they are both in that shell. But i dont no how to check I dont want to take it out and drain the water with them in it....I'm PANICKING!!!!!!!

They certainly are good hiders! You may find your missing loach the next time you go to feed them. I know mine was 'missing' for a couple of days; I, too, searched the entire tank and thought that "Tigger" had been eaten by my very large pangasius catfish, but eventually he showed up for a meal, cute as ever. I hope you find your missing fish.

Really....Yeah well this better not be the case for these little guys because food just doesnt fall into the shell. They must come out sooner or later. I guess I just must wait for them to come out because shaking the shell doesnt do no good except stress them out more so i have to be patient. But im worried there getting no food. man, i feel like a baby!!!

They might come out at night when you don't see them and eat leftover food. Mine does that.
