My tank is a few weeks old.
In it I have two mollies and I just added one clown loach.
I understand that loaches like to be with their own kind. At least one more will come, but I don't want to add more than one fish at a time in a relatively new tank.
The loach likes to pace up and down (vertically) on the side of the aquarium glass. It's frequent.
The two mollies are pretty fond of each other and hang out together pretty much all the time.
Is this because he doesn't have any school buddies? Think he'll be fine till I get some more? Ha.
I'm seeing all kinds of crazy recommended tank sizes for clown loaches. Mine is only 10 gallons, BUT I knew they will grow too large when I bought it. The fish store guy told me that when it gets too big, I can return it for store credit. That was actually something I expected to have to do one day. So I won't be too depressed about it.
However, until then, any one know why Mr. Clowny is loving that glass?
