The tank currently has in addition to the clown loach 5 silver dollars, 5 giant danios, a Geophagus surinamensis, and two weather loaches (know those shouldn't be in there, but they are large and healthy so I see no reason to get rid of them.) I do weekly 50-60% water changes and feed the fish a mixture of flakes, New Life Spectrum pellets, Hikari algae wafers, vegetables (lettuce, cucumbers, peas, carrots, corn seeds, etc.), and frozen foods. The tank is filtered using a powered undergravel and a canister filter, and there is a monthly service that comes to clean those (they're one of those companies that maintains tanks in hospitals and malls).

According to Aquadvisor I would be overstocked with just the loaches.
Also, today the advice would be to keep my Clown Loaches in a tank measuring a minimum of 6' x 2' x 2' which would be 150 gallons.
If you want the best for him maybe look for a public aquarium or zoo or something.
