I recently (about a week ago) purchased 2 clown loaches that are about one inch long. They both seem to be doing well in a 46 gallon community tank.
They don't eat when I feed the tank (flakes and either bloodworms or brine shrimp), but they are constantly easting from the bottom of the tank. I knwo adult loaches are always eating, so is this normal?
I do weekly 25% water changes and every other week change the filter or vacum the gravel. The temp is steady at 80 f and the ph at 7.5.
Are there any gotchas I should know about these little guys? They seem to be fearless and like to school with the neon tetras and rummy-nosed tetras.
At some point I hope to move them into a 55 gallon
with 3 bigger (3-5 inches) clown loaches.
