Many people also like Kuhli loaches. I've never had them personally though.

Angelicus are another Botia species that doesn't get as large as clowns.

I've always kept mine in cooler water. I have had the opposite experience, where my weather loach April would be noticeably displeased when the water got too warm during the summer months. That said, whatever works! They're ridiculously hardy fish

Kuhli loaches are fantastic little fish! As are Angelicus loaches! Dangit, I love all of them lol.

In my experience, clowns prefer slightly warm temps- 80 degrees seems about right to me.

Welcome to the forum. I recommend also joining the local fishkeeping group that we have in the panhandle if you haven't already, just do a facebook search for Gulf Coast Aquarium Club.

I might seem out of place, considering this is an intro thread and I just came to state my opinion, but loaches look freaking awesome!


New fish.

I think that was the perfect place for your post. I just contacted a local breeder and will be picking up some more this weekend. I'm psyched!!
