Zebras go pretty good with the Clowns and it is good that they remain smaller - that way your Clowns will obviously be the head Loach in the tank. I would not recommend the B. Modesta - they can get aggressive and might nip at your Clowns, or worse yet, bully and intimidate them.. Well obviously B....

Thanks for replys, decided against mixing the species as the zebra ones which I liked are considerably smaller than the clowns which I already have. Perhaps sometime I will set up another tank!! :roll:

Java Moss & A Java Fern

Hi,
I am thinking of getting one each of these, will the Clown loaches eat it?

Can you keep different types of loach together?

Just wondering really what would happen if I put 6 of another type of loach e.g. Blue botia or Zebra loach in with my 6 clown loaches, would they shoal together? or would they squabble?

Hi,
I am new here as well!! and I too have only just started keeping clown loaches, they are brilliant aren't they? just one question, how do you keep the romaine lettuce in place? I have a veggie clip but am not sure if the loaches will feed from the lettuce if it is stuck on the side.

Having sand as a substrate.

Hi, I really like the look of sand - especially white sand - as a substrate, but when I tried it before (with apple snails) I couldn't seem to stop what I think was anaerobic bacteria? the sand almost turned black in places and smelled awful, so I now use tiny round pebbles. How can I have a nice de...
