They look very healthy! Hopefully many years to come for these nice loaches! I am very interested on their progress.

A guy on another forum has been promising me pictures for the last year. Apparently his are 20-ish year old. I am yet to see any....So generally speaking there's no active poster at the moment that's proven to have loaches of that age, which makes yours unique.

Hey Redshark,

I know you're interested in finding other old clown loaches.

I just found an old post from about 3-4 years back of a guy owning a 23 year old loach at the time. He says in his comments its the last surviving one from his original bunch he bought when he retired....There are pictures!!! The clown is just over 8 inches long...

See below for more, scroll down..

Thanks Loachloach that was an interesting thread from 2013 which I had not seen previously. I'll keep it. I need to know if Keithgh's Clown Loach is alive.

I've not yet joined that forum but on 13.09.15 Keith said that his Clown Loach now lives in a display tank at his LFS.

I missed that part...So there's a possibility the clown loach is still alive...

There was/is a member of this forum I believe called Emma Turner? She had a huge Clown fish which I think she called Madge, I think Madge was over a foot long but I could be wrong.
