  2. Missing Clown Loach :( Will my remaining Loach die of loneliness?

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    I can confirm that last time I saw both Loaches in my tank was about 3 days ago. They both looked very healthy and very active. I have had them for 3 months and they are well acclimated. I got them when they were about 1+1/2 inches and now they are 3 inches. I have been really busy the last 3...

    Tropical Fish Diseases
    I have to say, without a doubt, that my favorite piece of tank equipment is my UV sterilizer/powerhead. I haven't seen much mention of UV sterilizers within the forums and wanted to get a feel if other members have had luck treating their fish with it and to raise awareness of its benefits in an...

    Hi there! My pal Slurpy is a clown loach, about 4 inches or so: I did a little research recently to discover that he needs a bigger tank (we have only 20 gallon) and he would be happier with other loaches. I love this little guy dearly, and will only give him away to a home where I think...

    Right now I have 3 cardinal tetras, 1 sailfin molly, 1 zebra loach, and 2 clown loaches. My zebra loach is always chasing my two clown loaches whenever they eat and dig into the rocks.

  8. A Few Questions About My Loaches

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I have 2 clown loaches and one zebra loach. All three of them like to hide behind the heater in the corner of the tank. Is that normal? Also whenever someone walks by the tank they swim back to that corner to where the heater is. Is it normal for them to get startled like that? And I noticed...
  9. My fish went crazy

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    Just about 2 minutes ago I turned on the light on my fish tank and one of my clown loaches just went absolutely crazy. I turned it on and then it just swam extremely fast. It scared me because it just seemed like it was panicing for some reason. It swam so fast all around the tank, back and...

    Hi, I've recently acquired from a friend a 50 gallon established planted freshwater aquarium and two weeks after the move I'm concerned one of the clown loaches has Ich or something similar in appearance. All the fish appear to be very happy, eating and swimming just fine (including the smallest...

  13. Clown loach too big for my tank?

    Cyprinids and Atherinids
    In my earlier days of raising fish my local pet store recommended me a clown loach to help out with a snail problem I had in my tank, the loach devoured the snails no problem but now I've been reading online and it sounds like he's going to get way too big for my tank eventually. My question...
