How many clown loaches should be kept together?
Tankmates. Peaceful with its own and other species, the clown loach prefers to have companions with which it will form a school. Virtually all non-aggressive fish are suitable as tankmates. Because they prefer to live in groups, it’s wise to keep four or more in a tank.
How many clown loaches can you have in a 10 gallon tank?
5- 2” clown loaches in 10 gallon tank won’t work either. Clowns need plenty of space to grow. A 4′ tank is the minimum for a group of small clowns and a 6′ foot tank for a group of large clowns is needed. Myth #3- One clown can be happy by itself.
Why are clown loaches so expensive?
Steroids and hormones are used in asian farms with success but there is a higher mortality rate among the babies this way (raising cost) along with their slow growth, figure and inch a year whereas other loach species are double that. So more work goes into rearing of the surviving fish (raising the cost).
What is the best tasting freshwater fish?
Walleye. Many people call walleye the best – tasting fish in freshwater, although yellow perch should also get the same accolades, as they are a smaller cousin. Most walleye are filleted, but they can be cooked in a variety of ways, including frying, baking, and broiling.
Does Walmart still sell fish?
Walmart is getting out of the pet fish business. In a conference call with its livestock suppliers earlier this year, the mass retailer reportedly announced that it would be pulling all pet fish and live aquatic plants from its stores. The move began in March and is expected to be completed by Oct. 1, 2019.
Can I keep one clown loach?
I personally wouldn’t put a Clown loach by himself. I also wouldn’t plan on keeping a clown loach in a 4 ft tank for the long haul. Clowns are a schooling fish that can easily get to 8+ inches long in no time, and have been reported to max out around 16 inches. They should also be kept in at least a group of 3 IMHO.
How many clown loaches can you have in a 55 gallon tank?
You could, however, house up to 4 juvenile Clown Loaches in a 55 – gallon tank, but this would only be for the short term, once they grow to the adult size you would need to move them to a bigger tank based on the 30 gallons per fish guideline.
Why has my clown loach died?
It’s probably just bad water quality. The nitrate started out as ammonia. Water change is probably the only solution. As for your snail problem, using loach is a problem.
Will a clown loach eat other fish?
Re: Clown loach eating other fish. Loaches are opportunistic, while they don’t typically hunt other fish if they see an opportunity to eat a smaller fish they will. Some of the more aggressive Botiine loaches will sometimes go after smaller fish.
What should I feed Clown Loach?

What is the best food for clown loaches?
Live foods like bloodworms, earthworms and small shrimp are considered a delicacy to Clown Loach and should be fed once a week as a treat. These fish also love snails and we certainly recommend that you feed snails to your Loach.
Is it normal for Clown loaches to hide?
Hiding. If you have a good-sized place for them to hide, such as a cave, some driftwood with a hole in it, or even some pieces of PVC, you will observe your fish acting like clowns in a circus all crowding into one small car. They will jockey with each other for position and constantly shift around together.
Do Clown loaches eat a lot?
Yes, fish can overeat. An occasional big belly is not a problem as long as the fish are not looking like blimps, and the fat tummy goes away without any problems like constipation. Consistently overfeeding the fish leads to problems like fatty liver, possibly constipation and is not a good idea.
