Another amazing Clown Story.

The June issue of Practical Fishkeeping has a good article about a couple who specialise in "Tankbusters".

One section tells of a Red-tailed Catfish that shared with a Clown-loach, a Pike-Cichlid, and some Plecs. After the pike and a Golden-Nugget Plec dissapeared into the Red-tail's ever hungry stomach. They moved the cat out, but put the Clown-loaches survival (because it was easily swallowable) down to the fact that it used to FEED the Red-tail!

Apparantly the Clown would pick up prawns and deposit them in front of the big cat!

Now I call that intelligence.
