Clown loaches and Dawrf, Blue, Red Honey gouramis

i was looking into keeping Red Honey gouramis with Clown loaches..but everywhere i look says they're incompatible

however, i found that...blue gouramis and dawrf gouramis ARE compatible with Clown loaches

what makes the .......blue and dawrf gourami's compatible but the red honey gourami's incompatible with Clown Loaches?

i really want some clown loaches :(


btw these are what i just picked up

Clown loaches will never be compatible with smaller species of gouramis. Pls note that clowns aren't your ordinary 5-inches loaches. They grow far too large for an average private aquarium. As 12-16 inches, they live very long(often 40 years) and are often victimized to being stunted because most people keep them in tanks of 10 gallons and even lower.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Try Botia kubotai, Botia striata or Botia sidthimunki.:) The third one is the most expensive as it is not common to see them in pet stores these days. Heaven knows my search for them prove too futile.
