Loach Question

Posted By: Joseph Largent <inkonsydr8@yahoo.com>

I am new to owning an aquarium and I have a question. I just purchased three loaches the other day. A Clown, a Yoyo, and what I think is a Botia Rostrata. I read that loaches tend to be social fish and like to be in groups of three or more. Thus way I purchased three. My question is that am I able to mix them like this, or do they prefer the company of their own kind? Meaning clowns prefer the company of other clowns and the same with the others. If not I will have to fix the problem.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, Joseph
