Greedy Loaches!

No peace for my BN's during feeding time! My Clowns have zero respect for anyone else if food is involved

My Pleco's are very tolerant!

I think they must put something addictive in algae wafers, even the Angels come down for a go!

OMG, I'm in love with that angel! Stunning.....

You must have a pretty big tank to support those species. I love clown loaches but never had the right tank available for them.

He's a bit of a star! I've got a couple of bigger Angels in there, I'll post a pic of them. The Clowns are lovely, always on the move. I've got a 63 gallon tank at the moment, with another 63 gallon on order, so I might split off the Angels or the loaches if they get too big, but all is peace & harmony at the moment!

I need another tank as I seem to be developing a Pleco addiction

Thank you. I don't breed. They were a very lucky find at my LFS. I've got a juvenile pearl scale angel too called 'glimmer', as she really shines, and until yesterday I had a small for it's age juvenile black veil tail called 'Noir', but sadly he was very small & weak and I found him laying on the bottom barely able to move.

I'm not sure how, but my other half has agreed to another 63 gallon & a 5 gallon in the bedroom. I think I might be in for some serious payback!!!

Lol, poor little pleco. I would LOVE to have clown loaches, but I do not have the space. I have 3 angels though and 2 of them paired up. Yours are beautiful!

Cheers. They're quite hard to sex, aren't they? I'd love mine to pair up & I think one is much more dominant than the other, so could be the male, but I'm not sure.

The three Bristlenoses hold their own when they need to, lol!
