In Response To: Will loaches breed in captivity? (hilbob)

They are egg-layers and I know clowns usually never reach sexual maturity in an aquarium due to their potential size. BUT yo-yos probably do because they do not get all that big. If I were you, I would put them in another tank if there are fish in that one that might eat eggs. Then see what happens. If you DO end up with fry then RAISE THEM! because you can sell them to most local fish shops and thay will buy them and yo-yo's will bring a hefty price for fry! ANYWAY, If she lays any eggs the males will know what to do!!! TRUST ME.....
