i dont know if they are available in the US but if they are i doubt they would be freshwater but defo worth setting up a brackish tank for them thats for sure, there is also the silver scat but they do get real big where the red gets to about 6" max, im really lucky the guy has been working on them for years to get them to survive in freshwater and the 2 i have are thriving thats for sure, and 2/3 years i had thwm now without any issues

Great pics!

I was going to ask about th scat, too! He has beautiful colouring. I have never seen one, even in a picture. He must be a great addition to your tank!

Also love the markings on that one little clown! Even his background colour is different from the others.

Thanks for sharing!

I've got a clown loach that looks like that little one except he has no stripe at all on one side, I'll upload it soon. He looks like a skunk loach.
