Hi, Newbie here... I have about a million questions but I'll start with one. My wife and I have just started with this hobby and we both instantly fell in Love with Clown Loaches, we picked up a pair and then read somewhere that they should be kept in odd numbers, is this true? and if so why? ( regardless we picked up 3 more!) Is there a great variation in the colouration of clowns many I have seen are black stripped, whereas 3 of the ones we have seem to be greyish... is this a cause for concern? they also don't seem to go up to get food but kinda of vacuum along the ground...

anyway any help would be appreciated!

Thanks Miles
