I agree with option no. 2. He's been in a small tank and had more contact with the glass than he's been used to. I hope it heals and is then forgotten.
Dammit, you've got me saying "he" now
Yes, his colour is not great and he seems to have been starved for a while, probably in the shop. I hope he's eating. He didn't eat straight after I put him after acclimating but today he was sifting around at dinner time so hopefully he'll fatten up. He tends to be following my loaches rather than them following him so he still has not established any higher than 6th out of 6 available positions
Thanks very much for your input and comments.
I think because the big loach is so outgoing he's making the other loaches come out a lot more now. Even if they retreat after hours of racing around he still keeps going alone. He even made my corys join in so on one side I've got the clowns and on the other a bunch of corys racing the glass
Every time I see an ad for a clown loach, I think a new tank would be a suitable replacement for our coach
The clown is doing great. He has claimed his own cave. There has been no fights for dominance that I've seen and everything is peaceful and friendly. He does not attack my smaller fish or intimidate them in any way so it seems size for clown loaches doesn't imply greater possibility of predation, although I hope he snacks on baby platies
The clown loach is doing fine and I am glad I didn't introduce any diseases by not quarantining him, however I don't suggest that to anyone of course.
I honestly can't see the white patch on his nose anymore and he won't pose for me but from what I can tell it may be gone altogether.
He is a bit of a loner, meaning that he comes out on his own a lot or would be in his cave when the rest are out, but he does join the others every day for the entire morning and seems to mostly follow them around like a puppy. I don't think he knows he's the biggest one of them
My big new loach has settled fully. His white nose has completely healed for sure as I had a good look. And he eats from my hand!! His belly has rounded too The rest started copying him and come to the top of the tank after him at feeding time and love snatching the mini wafers falling down. Their barbells are so soft and I love when they "bite" me. They are so gentle
