In Response To: Clown Loach growth rates?!? (Au)
Au, it's very difficult to be specific about growth rates. Little clowns like yours tend to grow quickly with good food and water changes, then slow down once around 2-3 inches. Your tank isn't THAT big so they may well slow up sooner and eventually will be crowded and you'll need a bigger tank.
They tend to have growth spurts every so often, and as they get bigger often the growth is down rather than along, i.e. they get deeper in the body rather than gain length.
