Are there any other loaches that get close to the size of clowns and are peaceful?
thanks jerry :D

A number of the Tiger Botia (Syncrossus sp) can get 25cm or so, but they are not peaceful fish. Personally I'd stick to the Clowns and have as many as you can accomodate :wink:

Thanks Emma that is what I am going to do. But I have a twin brother and he also has a big tank. And he wanted me to ask. He was looking at all the pictures on coppermine.
thanks again

The tiger Botias - properly the genus Syncrossus - would be fantastic if you can accommodate gnarly fish. And if you can find them. But they'd do best in a species tank, IMO.
Your vantage point determines what you can see.
