For what it is worth I have taken some photos of one of my six year old clowns and posted them here http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Prairie/1572/loach.htm (Should be up in the next hour or so) This represents six years of growth in a 180, fed twice a day (onecs veggie and once protien on average), teperature of 82 degrees F, slightly acidic Ph, at least 20% water changed weekly, and no longterm tankmates except danio.
