    Likewise. Nothing appears out of the ordinary. Of course my eyes tend to miss the most subtle things..

    I agree with the two above posts, but would add that what is really telling is they way you describe his behavior; that is, very active. Sick fish normally behave like they are sick:), were being very active is one sign of health. This does sound a bit trite, but looking at the way a fish behaves is very important in determining his health.
    And no problem with asking for an opinion, Newbiee
    All the best, rick

    Looks good to me as well. How many do you have?

    Looks fine to me and they don't lack any colour.

    Also, how big is your tank? Clown loaches have growth requirements that many newbies, as you say you are, don't know about. They need a huge tank, upwards of 155 gallons.

    You already have a 150 laying around? Or are you planning on getting one soon?

    If that is a cardinal partially in one of your pics, it would seem that your clowns are still rather small.
    There is absolutely no problem with growing out juvenile fish in a smaller tank than the one they will be ultimately be housed in, so you seem to have a good handle on what you are doing, as you already have the 150g---best, rick

    I have larger clowns that I will be putting back into the 150 but I am having problems with this clown in particular. After going through the whole treatment for ich he now seems to have something starting on his tail it looks like tiny triangular notches on the back of his tail. Am I just being overly cautious or could this be the beginning of fin rot?
