Clown loach sexing

i have 3 clown loaches approx 8" in length and i was wondering if anybody has bred them although i realise this is very rare ,i would like to know how to sex them and what conditions that are liable to bring them into breeding condition . I understand that they love live food etc but mine seem to go crazy over a particular type of groundbait i use for fishing with crushed hemp and seem to be getting very large on this,they also seem to be partial to trout pellets so maybe this is accounting for there growth as they are very high in protein? if you can pass on any information or can help please contact me.

Thanks steve
