Shedd Aquarium?

Does anyone know if the Shedd Aquarium still have Clown Loaches?

I will probably be going there in June and wondered if they still had Clown Loaches or not.

Thanks.

Re: My six Clown Loaches have reached 22 years of age.

Thanks for sharing your story. Clown loaches from Sumatra seem to be rare compared to Borneo clown loaches. I'm not sure why that is. Currently in Ohio in the US all the clown loaches appear to be from Sumatra which isn't the norm. In my experience I have not found the Sumatran Clown Loach to be les...

Clown Loaches from Sumatra vs Borneo

Does anyone else have Clown Loaches from Sumatra? Almost all photo's of clown loaches seem to be loaches from Borneo. The last group of loaches I picked up are from Sumatra. I'm just wondering if anyone else has some. Also, I wondered if anyone knew why they are currently from Sumatra when they seem...

Re: Tank raised Clown loach lifespan?

Tank raised Clown loaches are relatively new. Given that they haven't been around for 20 years, no one will have 20 year old tank raised clowns. It's possible a breeder that was working on breeding clowns in a tank may have some but I doubt they are reading the forum. I don't know the answer to your...

Re: My six Clown Loaches have reached 22 years of age.

Thanks for the information.

What temperature do you keep the clowns at?

I appreciate all the information, when you have someone that has had 22 years of success with clown loaches I think you should learn as much as you can from them.

Re: What's the best time to buy clown loaches?

A revised version of my question is what time of the year are clown loaches collected in the wild? Furthermore, when is the best time to buy clown loaches that are healthiest? I've recently purchased some clowns to add to my school and have had very poor results. In the past I've bought clowns and h...

What's the best time to buy clown loaches?

What time of the year are clown loaches collected in the wild?

I'm having a hard time finding new clowns that are healthy or that will at least survive 2 weeks with me.

Thanks

Maybe an external heater controller so that the heater and the controller have to agree to heat before it does? Also, you could put 2 smaller heaters in the tank to split the load. I'm sorry for your loss, but you did do something right to have 11 year old clowns. www.jehmco.com has a bunch of heate...

Koralia 8

Do you think two koralia 8's would be too much current for a 265 gallon 7 foot tank?

Thanks.

In their native habitat how cold does the clown loach habitat get?

I am just very surprised at how active and happy these clown loaches are at 70F?

Diana, what temp do you think clowns would like during "winter"?

Have a great day.
