Avoid keeping Clown Loach with highly aggressive fish, long fins, goldfish, snails, shrimp. Shrimp and snails will just be a tasty snack for a clown loach.

The omnivorous Clown Loach eats all kinds of fresh, frozen, dry flakes and pellets without any issues. One of the best ways to go is by providing sinking pellets and algae wafers as their main diet staple. In addition to dried food, you can provide Clown Loaches occasional live, freeze-dried, or frozen foods as snacks. They enjoy earthworms and bloodworms. Brine shrimp works well, too. Be wary of overfeeding.
