Our Pictures

This website has lots of pictures of the fish that we offer for sale. Will the fish you get look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is like buying a kitten or a puppy, that will change as it grows and matures.

Click here to read more about our fish.

We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to ship. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they will have trouble adjusting to a new home.

The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we ship that we raised up, and you can too!

We usually do not get advance notice, so we can't supply you with any more information, and it will do no good to email us and ask us, when we'll have it back in stock.

Comments: This is a Premium Pet Fish, and we never see Premium Fish like this in any of the live fish stores that we visit. Our Premium Pet Fish are more energetic, hardier, and have brighter colors with a beautiful metallic sheen. Click here to learn more about Our Premium Pet Fish.

Origin: These Loaches are caught in the jungles in Borneo and Sumatra, which are two large islands in Southeast Asia, and they now live in aquariums throughout most of the world.

Maximum Size: In aquariums Clown Loaches can grow to be about 12" long, including their tails. Rarely very old females are even bigger.

Behaviors: Clown Loaches are active swimmers and quarrel gently with each other but are rarely aggressive. They need to have a cave to hide in and spend a lot time hidden away to then come out and flash their beautiful colors and pattern. Sometimes they pile on top of each other or lie on their sides, looking sick or dead.

Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include Barbs, Rainbowfish, Danios, Gouramis, and many other small to medium size aquarium fish. Click here to read more about compatible groups of pet fish.

Temperature: They live well from about 75 to 80+ degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable at about 78 degrees F. Click here to learn about aquarium temperature, aquarium thermometers, and aquarium heaters.

Feeding: Premium Fish Food Flakes when very small and small Premium Pellet Food when larger. Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.

Water Conditions: Clown Loaches seem to be tolerant of a wide range of water conditions. Probably a pH of about 6.5 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water. Here in our facilities the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water. Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions.

Aquarium Size: It is probably best to house these fish in at least a 30-gallon tank, when they're less than 3" long, but a bigger aquarium is almost always better for the fish. Allow at least 3-gallons of water for each Clown Loach under 3" long. They grow at a moderate rate and at about 3" should move into a 40 to 60-gallon aquarium. Eventually they'll need to live in a much bigger aquarium with 150 to 300-gallons of water. 

Decor: Clown Loaches do not need gravel, and a layer of gravel more than 1/4" thick will usually fill with bits of uneaten food that will contaminate the water. Click here for more about aquarium gravel.

Live Plants are beautiful and improve the water quality. Clown Loaches seem to do better in aquariums with live plants.

Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 200B in an aquarium with 30-gallons of water is OK to start with a few Clown Loaches that are less than 3" long. At 3" long Clown Loaches should move into a 40 to 60-gallon aquarium with a Penguin 350B, and eventually a much larger aquarium with 150 to 300-gallons of water and as many Penguin 350B Filters as will fit along the back edge. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.

The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.

Life Span: Clown Loaches can live in excess of 20-years, if they're fed premium food and kept in a very large aquarium with very fresh water.

Gender: As they mature females become larger and plumper than males, who are raised in the same group.

Breeding: There've been a few reports of Clown Loaches spawning in aquariums, but it's rare. There are reports that very small fry of this fish are collected and raised up by fish farmers. Not exactly breeding them but the next best thing.

Popularity: Clown Loaches are very popular.

Names: The scientific name of Clown Loaches is Chromobotia macracanthus.

Variations: There are distinct populations, one on Sumatra and the other on Borneo, which have been separated for millions of years and may by now be different species.
