In Response To: Re: Breeding the clown loach (Carney)

Hi Carney,

The short answer is that Clown Loaches have never been bred in the U.S.

-however-

The long answer is that _never_ is a pretty big word, and it's easy to be proved wrong. I've heard of people using hormone injections to induce adult clown loaches to spawn. However, no one has released a 10 Step Guide to Breeding Clown Loaches, or anything that simple. Besides, the rumors could be just that, rumors.

Jeff
