I took my son to a different pet shop today before going to the one we normally use. ( this one carries snakes, birds, etc. - not just fish ). Anyways, I was just looking at their tanks and fish, and I noticed in the very last tank, something VERY large. I lifted the paper up that was on the glass, and it was a BIG CLOWN LOACH! WOW! I have never seen one that big before!! But, something was strange with him. His back fin, where it should be orange, wasn't! His stripes were almost ghostly. Infact, all his orange coloring was gone. He just lye there and looked at me. I felt so bad for him. I can't believe how pitiful he looked without his coloring. It was almost as if he was scared out of it!!
