welcome along :D

you will find more about clown loaches here:

there is all sorts of usefull stuff within the site. have a good read, and feel free to ask any questions.

the first things that spring to mind for you to consider is that loaches need company, so you should get some more for your loach to be happy and behave normally. thay grow quickly when they are young, and can get very big, so you should consider whether you are able to get a bigger tank (i have a 5 foot tank, but do not keep clowns as i do not believe i have enough space to keep them long term)
