Clown Loaches now 27 years old

Obo is male, six inches long and 27 years old.

Obo is the first Clown Loach I purchased in January 1995 as a yearling. I rang to check that Clown Loaches were in stock and was going to purchase a whole group. However, their relatively dull colouration put me off so I just purchased one. I then found more typically coloured fish and purchased the rest of my group in other shops during the same month.

I believe that Obo originates from Sumatra where Clown Loaches are typically paler. My other Clown Loaches are likely to originate from Kalimantan.

I have now met many owners of Large and Old Clown Loaches on Facebook at Clown Loach Fanatics.

Many fish have changed ownership and so their true age is unknown, but some do have a history so we can be sure of their age.
