Clown Loach Feeding Question

Posted By: Nicholas
Date: Sunday, 19 November 2000, at 11:46 p.m.

I recently added my first clown loach to my 20 gallon tank which includes two bala sharks, two silver dollars, a red tail shark and one alg eater. At feeding time I add tropical fish food first and then place a sinking waffer into loach's cave. After just being fed, the other fish, especially the silver dollars, manage to extract the waffer from the cave and go into a feeding frenzy. My concern is that they will eventually starve the loach with their greed. The loach does pick up leftover food from the gravel. Are scraps enough?
