    hi Christoph, in my 600l aquarium I have a bunch of clown loaches, some cat fish and tetra. Now I got shrimps as a present for christmas. I haven't seen them since. In case you may know, do they hide in the sand or are they seen as prey for clown loaches or any of the other fish? Btw, thank you for administering this rich website.

      hi Maria, thank you for writing. Indeed, shrimps are a nice meal for your clown loaches. Sorry I can't tell you else! Best, Christoph

    Hey, do you know if I can have my loaches together with platy and guppy?

      hi Sarah, so far I couldn't see any problems with guppys. Usually, clown loaches are peaceful. But it could happen that they try to start nibble the fins of other fish, so I would suspect some losses among guppys. Regards, Christoph
