    My smallest clown loach just passed away the same way a few of my other loaches have. They begin to have a fat stomach then they go to the top of the water for a day or two, then they die. My tank is a 40 gallon with two filters a aqua clear 50 and aqua clear 20. The temp is set to 79.5. The ph is 7.0 am is 0 nitrite is 0 and nitrate is 10. I took pics so you guys can examine him. I just don’t want my other loaches to suffer the same fate any help is highly appreciated. IMG_2112.JPGIMG_2113.JPG

    Ok what about shrimp pellets and flake foods. Algae wafers and blood worms are not enough to keep them healthy. Mine eat anything that goes in my tank and I feed at least 15 different types of food during the week. The only thing they don’t eat is algae wafers.

    I have never seen or heard of this bloating in Clown Loaches.

    My Clown Loaches do eat algae wafers.
