General questions

Ok so my angels have spawned again and i was wondering if females matured sooner than males? This is their third spawn and I was curious why not babies. Also I am the orpine new parent of 5 clown loaches and was curious how long they need to be in a tank before they stop being shy? As in swim around and don't hide in the landscape. Thanks all.

Clown loach are great and have a lot of personality once they grow comfortable. As far as I know they'll hide in the furniture as long as they fit. I will say they have trouble hiding in the landscape when they get to be this big, that's for sure:



And bigger:



Some people say a 75 is fine for full grown clown loach, I say that's ridiculous. I'm not sure about the angels.

Yea clowns are cool. As of now I have them in a 10. They swim around but when I check on them they hide. I'd like them to be active for this party I'm hosting and wondering how long I should give them to get comfortable in the display tank.

It is possible he male angel is sterile, or isn't even trying to fertilize the eggs. I have seen this as well as having 2 females spawn.

What is a good time to keep clown loaches qted? Since they are so sensitive, would a two week qt suffice?

So what do you think about the qt time? I'd like the clowns in my 90 but I don't want to put them in danger.

That was my times as well. It's only been a week tomorrow. So I'll give it another two. I'm soo excited. These fish are the only reason I got a 90 gallon.
