Notes - Clown Loaches are one of the most eclectic fish in the aquarium hobby. Named clowns for their orange and black coloring, along with their goofy behavior, these fish are an excellent choice for large community tanks. Clown loaches are disruptive to smaller plants, but plants with established root systems or secured to hardscapes can be kept with them.
