Clown Loach (Chromobotia macracanthus) - Tropical Fish - YouTube

I have four clown loaches which love to swim around together all day. They are not shy at all. Three of them are only a couple of inches long but one is over TWELVE INCHES long and very chunky. Its the biggest one I have ever seen. Be aware that when these fish reach a descent size they will definitely require a large tank. Mine are in 125 gallon tank and seem happy. From: William

Clown loaches are great additions to community aquariums and get along with all kinds of fish. I have had 8 Clown Loaches for over 31 years now, and the entire school is 27 Clown Loaches strong. They live in a 200 gallon tank with Silver Dollars, 'Roseline Sharks', a Electric Blue Jack Dempsey, a Geophagus, 3 very large Pink Tale Chalceus and 1 Tire Track Eel. I've been running a 25 watt UV Sterilizer for 5 years now, but before that the Clowns would periodically come down with ICH. The only treatment I have ever used for ICH is 1 teaspoon of non-iodized salt per gallon PLUS elevating the tank temp to 86 degrees, and maintaining this for two weeks. After two weeks slowly lower the temp, and do several water changes to remove the salt. This treatment has always worked, and I have never lost a fish to ICH. From: K L
