Fran, just a mention that they actually do not like their water as warm as originally thought. Current research points clown loaches optimum temperature is 26C.(78.8F).They like their water especially warmer than the general tropical fish population.
I think a researcher should have kept clown loaches for quite some time before writing a "research" paper on clown loaches husbandry, and even then it is very difficult to do....It seems the OP didn't go for that topic in the end.
I guess we need to look back to their native waters and see what they are living in the majority of the year.
