Hey all- I have been keeping loaches for awhile, but never clowns. I finally decided to give them a try (you all seem so taken with yours). I bought three from a good quality fish store in my area.

I feed them three times a day, but lost two anyway. The next weekend I bought three more from a different store because I didn't want the one to be alone, but I didn't want to buy from the same batch as the first.
