Hey guys, i just wanted to know why my Clown Loach always go to the top of the motor for the filter near the heater. Is it because the temperature is too cold for them? Or is it because they like that secluded area of the tank?
-heater is set at 26 degrees celcius

Hi! to FishLore!
Clown Loaches like their water 78-83F but along with warm water they like lots of room to swim, places to hide/sleep. I see he has a buddy but they like to be in groups. They also get huge. they will out grow your tank soon sorry to say.
Your tank seems a bit over crowded too.
He may just be looking for a spot of his own. Here's some information and cool pic for you to look at. https://www.loaches.com/species-index/clown-loach-chromobotia-macracanthus
