    My biggest clown loach all of a sudden started laying on his side and breathing heavy. He lays like he’s dead and then he swims like normal. Does anyone have experience on this I am worried about him.

    Are your water parameters ok? Does he have any sign of disease?

    It is not unusual for Clown Loaches to simply rest by laying on their side. This behavior was known at least as far back as the 1960s. Many beginners have had panic attacks thinking their Loach was dead! :dead:
