Clown Loach - Chromobotia Macracantha
Endemic to Indonesia
Maximum Standard Length 10-12"
The Clown Loach is a must-have fish for many enthusiasts. It is relatively peaceful and gets along well with almost any tankmate. They are also very active and typically do not hide during the day. They are a voracious eater of nuisance snails. A wonderful addition to an African cichlid tank.
Native to Indonesia, they appreciates caves, holes, and other hiding places in heavily planted aquariums. Because the Clown Loach is native to fast moving streams, it prefers good water movement and currents in the aquarium. The Clown Loach can grow to an impressive size of nearly 1 foot in length, it should be housed in larger freshwater systems.
For the best care, feed the Clown Loach small meals several times throughout the day. Smaller Clown Loaches will eat most prepared foods while older ones may be more picky. Prepared foods such as vegetable flakes or tablets along with meaty supplements such as live, frozen, or freeze-dried worms will provide this species with the proper nutrition.
