Hello, this is my first time posting here. I have been reading this Forum for the last 3 weeks, and I have had my 3 clown loaches Big(10cm=4 inches), Medium(5cm), Small(4.5cm) for 2 weeks. They are in a small tank (24 l=6 gal) by themselves at the moment (I know it is too small for them), but I am buying a new bigger tank in a month. The new tank will be a 76cm(30 inches) wide 20 gal tank. As I would like to have more clown loaches, I wonder how many clowns a 20 gal tank can handle? The filter for the new tank will be an Aquaclear 200 external (hang-on-the-back kind), and a small internal power filter for air and water flow. I am thinking of having only clown loaches in this tank. How many would you suggest? I appreciate your input.
Shiho@this Forum got me hooked! I am having so much fun with my three clowns.
