How many loaches do you have and what’s the size of your tank? Also what other fish do you have in there?

Clown loaches are very social. They need to be in a school of six. If you do not have a tank that can support 6 12 inch long, 3 intall, 4 inch wide monster aized fish, consider ehoming it. Clown loaches need a large school in a tropical aquarium, there is no way around that.

Tiger barbs are nasty fin nippers unless they are in a larg school of 10 or more.

Clown loaches, tiger barbs, red tail sharks should not be in the same tank as gfoldfish!!!

look for privatly owned petstores. I somtimes drive pretty far away to find good fish stores. you can always call and ask before you go if they have what you are looking for.
Good luck with your clowns they are long lived fun fish. get then plenty of meaty foods, like bug bites, blood worms, brine shrimp, krill. they will eat anything, but they are carnivours and need extra protein.

Well, let me know, She is a part time music teacher, she has nursed abused animals back to lovable dogs and cats.
the aquarium is right next to the computer in the living room so she or her daughter can watch them all day. her pets are more spoiled and loved then any pets ever.
