So that's -

2 x 450litres
1 x 340litres
2 x 136litres

and a few of about 90 or 45 litres?

It's about time you stopped mucking about and started taking this hobby seriously! Very Happy

They cost about £6 here for a 2/3" fish mine are all around 6"
definately a fun fish to keep and even better if kept in groups.

Depending on size £15 wasn't to bad a price,
I would happily give £15 for an 8" clown. Smile

Yes but to reach 8" you'll have to keep the Loaches at least
2 yrs, think of all the money you'll spend on food. Very Happy

I'm certainly no expert lol but one thing I will say is
if you have room? don't get one loach get a few,
they do so much better in groups and you'll
have hours of fun watching them.

My Loaches eat mostly anything, sinking granuals like
Tetra Prima, blood worms(frozen) prawn huge favourite,
Cuecumber is a popular choice to.

A good alternative to Clown Loaches for a smaller tank is Zebra Loaches - they are similar colouting but with many more, narrower stripes. They are also lively, playful fish that do best in a group of 4-6.

Clowns need a lot of space as they can grown to around 12"

Zebra Loaches reach about 4" so a group of 6 can be quite happy in a Juwel 125 for example.
