With its orange and black striped body coloration and red-accented fins, the Clown Loach is a beautiful addition to the freshwater community aquarium. One of the most beautiful scavengers available, this Sumatran native grows to a typical size in the home aquarium of approximately 5 inches. Growing to nearly a foot in the wild, the Clown Loach is an active aquarium member who likes well-aerated water and temperatures at 76 degrees or below. Live Brine and frozen preparations will help the overall health and coloration of this aquarium classic.
