Clown loaches (Chromobotia macracanthus) are arguably the most vibrant and well-known of the family of loaches. With black stipes over orange, these fish are commonly sold as they add life to the bottom of any aquarium. Usually, these fish swim in schools so it is best to add a group of clown loaches into a tank.
