Clown Loach Question Help!

Posted By: Glostik <lordrunt@hotmail.com>

Is it normal for clown loaches to breathe heavier than other fishes?

My clown loaches breathe awful heavy/quick compared to all my other fish. They do all seem quite healthy though , eating and swimming around like normal. I have 5 clowns in a 75G right now.

I dont think my O2 is low, i have a Cannister,HOB, and powerhead to circulate water. I also have several live plants to provide O2. My ph is around 7.3/7.4, my nitrites and ammonia are practically nil, and my nitrates are very low.

Please help =\
