Clown loach or pakistani loach?

Hi I have a 25 gallon tank and I wanted to get a Pakistani loach like my friend but I then saw the clown loach. Which should I get?

Cloan loaches do better with other clown loaches rather than just keeping one by themselves in a tank. 25g tank would only suit a baby temperarily than need atleast a 75g as they grow pretty fast

If your not looking to get a bigger tank than i would say the paki (yoyo) loach since they dont get as big as the clown.. Not sure what other fishes are in your tank but as long as they arent too aggressive you should be ok

I'd suggest a school because they like to be in schools...

I'd recommend the pakistani (yo-yo) loach. Very active and playful.
They grow much smaller compared to clown loaches.
Get a minimum of 5!

Also, clown loaches are VERY SENSITIVE and stress very easily.
They are very prone to ich!

I don't think I'll be able to get that many. But my friend has had a single one in his tank for a year now and he says it's his best fish.
