Sacramento's Old Clown Loaches FOUND!

I saw Stuart's post way below (26 May) about "Old Clown Loaches in Sacramento." I lived in Sacramento for a little while over 10 years ago. By far the best aquarium store in the city was "Capital Aquarium." It is simply one of the best fish stores I have *ever* visited! They have a 1,000 gal display aquarium with large fish in it. I remember a *huge* Ghost Knife, Geophagus jurupari, etc., and some Clown Loaches. Well for kicks, grins, giggles, and old time's sake, I just gave them a call. They *DO* have them! They have a school of six. Two of them are *at least* 40 years old and are approximately 16" in length. The other 4 are over 20 years. I've been told also that over at the Stenhardt (sp)Aquarium in S.F. they reportedly have/had a 30+ year old Clown Loach! ...and I thought mine were old at 11! Hahaha! :-D
