I'm not saying this will be fool-proof, but it will help your clown more than keeping it as the sole loach in the tank.
thanks koi maiden, really appreciate the advice, next time im in my local pet shop ill be grabbing a few yo yos and possibly a few black widow tetras, hope the clown will be happy, since ive put him in with the new tank and the kissing gouramis hes been very active not constantly hiding
