Hi Sherlock, Welcome to the forum - It's good to see you have some Loaches. What type are they ?? I hope you dont house them with the Africans as they need totally different water parameters - the main difference is Loaches need a much lower PH (below 7.0) and a low to medium hardness (Gh below 100) They are a peacefull fish that do not like the aggresion of Africans. Cheers Graeme.

Hi Titlebound, Great to see someone else appreciates Loaches too. What Loaches have you got ???

Hi Sherlock, Sounds like your Clowns are happy in the 5 footer and if you have had them for 4 years you certainly know your stuff. How big are the older ones??? I have my eye on 7 15cm Clowns that I am setting up a 8x2.5x2 tank for with 3x1.5x1.5 sump and Eheim 2080 for filtration with pool-filter sand substrate and lots of Anubias and Crypt's on wood. I will have either Rainbows or Rasboras for "Dithers" and 3 or 4 Otto's.

I have 5 Botia Kubotai, 4 Botia Almorhae and 4 Botia Rostrata in a 3 footer at the moment with a Eheim 2026. I have had them for 18months and they have grown so much that I plan to set up a 5x2x2 for them and put Khulis and Panda Corys in the 3 footer. I certainly have my work cut out for me but it will be great when it is finished but my wallet will be much lighter - I'm so Lucky to have an "Understanding Wife" who likes fish also. Cheers Graeme.
