Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V1 #176
re clown loaches, as with Joanne I have not had problems with them. The
two I have are a delight in my big tank. I was so pleased with them that
I got two orange finned loaches and put them in a lightly planted tank
(different from the clown loach tank). Strands of val started to show up
at the surface. Seldom saw the fish and learned they are nocturnal.
They have a cutting member that retracts near the eye. After I traded
them in on a couple of flying foxes things are now OK. No more strands
of val floating in the tank. My advice - do get clown loaches if they
are free of ich. Stay away from orange finned loaches.
