My new tank

Post by LeStat » Fri Mar 18, 2011 5:04 pm

Hi all,
I haven't been on here for a while but I have set up a new tank and just had to share a photo of it, it is 7' x 2.5' x 2' and home to ~30 clowns of different sizes.

Hi all,

My Clowns are really very settled in their new home, so much so that they will happily play out together in the day. The only time they get spooked is when I clean the glass or one of my kids slams the door right next to the tank. Here are some photo's of my (not so) little group: -

Cheers, my biggest boy (the one in the last photo) is around 12", then there's three big girls of around 9"-10", another two girls around 7"-8" and a whole bunch of 5"-6" guys & girls.

He's huge. How old do you think he is? Do you have a name for him? You probably have the largest clown loach on this forum.

He is a big boy, he's called Ben and I got him from someone who sadly had to rehome their clowns, the person that kept him before them had him for 12 years so he must be around 15 years old, possibly more.
