Clown Loaches are a very sociable fish, and love to be kept with other clown loaches. They will school if kept in large enough groups, and really should be kept in a minimum group of three.
The Clown Loach is an omnivorous, scaleless loach, with vibrant body colouring. They are quite active, and will sleep with other clown loaches in any hole or nook it can find.
They will live for several years (and even decades) once established. They are slow growers, but can reach a large size in time (up to 25 cm). However, they are seldom seen at this size. Clown loaches often sleep on their side, which makes them look like they are dead - but don't be alarmed, this is quite normal.
Clown Loaches love to eat snails, and will control any snails that enter your tank through new plants or otherwise.
Clown Loaches make excellent tank mates to a wide variety of other aquarium fish, and their bright colouring and outgoing personalities make them one of the most popular aquarium loaches!
