Thanks for all the kind words.

The 450 has 2 48" 4x65w power compacts (in the shot only 4 10ks were on) and the 135 has 4 T5 bulbs.

I have 5 CL's two are 5-6" and the other 3 are 3-4". They are way more active since ive put them in the 450 as opposed to the 100 gallon. before feeding they are usally all out after they get feed usally the same 3 go to sleep.

thats awesome...I have problems with my 2 clown loaches. They seriously arent active...And there are a few little hiding spots to shadow themselves in but one of them preferres to sit vertical in the corner behind my U-G filter tube. And the other one sits in the same corner at the top of the tank behind my water pump that pumps the water from the U-G filter....and they sit there all day but they do come out and just sit there and sometimes go around the tank...then thats when I feed them bloodworms.....Weird! :P

I had 3 little ones in a 20L for about a month. then moved them and the lungfish to a 75 gallon for about 3 months and added a 4" to the tank to get them out more. it didnt work the 4" was more lazy then the 3 2-3". then they all went to the 100 and the big one and next biggest would be out a lot and the two smaller ones would hide in the wood. Then the 450 i got a 5" and the old 4" is now 6" and they are out often. try feeding them prawns choped up.

Yeah Gump. Nice tank. Are you using sand blasting sand or is the Taihiti moon sand?

Loaches do better in a small group. You'll probably find more activity if add some more.

I also noticed you have zebra danios in the same tank with the loaches. I used to have danios also, but later removed the danios, becuase they are quick, darting fish. CL's are nervous fish and if they see a fish that swims fast or darts, they take it as a sign that the fish is swimming away from danger, therefore, they stay hidden most of the time.
