2 X Clown Loach - FREE

I will be getting rid of my lovely clown loaches (an impulse purchase), have them for a few months they were active and healthy. Around 2 inches I would say in a 38 Gal. I am about to re-do my tank and don't want them to destroy my plants anymore, plants are more important than my fish. They don't seems to like plants with fine leaves but do put holes on all the crypts, swords, even Starougyne repens. No problem on anubias and any types of java fern. I want them to go to a tank that is at least 38gal with hiding place. Please show me a pic of your tank for these guys. The only problem is for me to catch them. I will need to make a trap or something because it is impossible to catch them with a net. If no interest, then they will be going to my lfs.

I love them but too bad they require a much bigger home than what I can offer. These guys were full of personality when I had them. Hand fed them worms. They are an incredible deal for free. Hope someone take them instead of LFS.

I almost replied to get them when I saw clown loach FREE! I used to have them when I had my non-planted tank, great fish! But I didn't know they destroy plants, so now I know then I wouldn't want to get them. I just took my silver dollar to LFS, it was sad farewell for had him over 5 years. Good luck finding a new owner for your clown loch.
