And while I do really like my clowns, Im starting to see some issues with water quality as everything matures, and just don't have room for another tank (have a 75g and 100g - had been looking to replace the 75 with a 125), so am left with having to choose between my oscar, EB...

Considering finding a home for 7 clown loaches

I am starting to lose some interest in the hobby, and may need to get rid of 7 fairly large clown loaches. The largest is nearly 7 inches, with the smellest being 3-4 inches. They have been together for nearly 2 years, but the bio load is getting too heavy and I'm reluctantly being forced to conside...

White nose??

I have a group 7 clown loaches in a 75G tank with a jack dempsey. I noticed the other day that the largest of my clowns has a white nose, and did not used to.
