New here, and had a quick question for you guys.
I have recently set up a Malawi cichlid tank and now have 16 young uns swimming about. I also have a common pleco within ad well.
I have just added 2 clown loaches to the tank to eat any snails that may pop up and to generally add more colour to the tank, however there appears to be a little hostile reception to them at the moment. There appears to be fin nipping from several of the malawi too. The chap who sold me them (pets at home) informed me there would be no problems with adding them.
I was wondering if I have just been feed a load of BS or if this is normal behaviour initially? I don't like to see the fish suffer so if it is not a good idea, please let me know and I will transfer them to the other tank.
Many thanks for your help
