Two clown loaches - advice on 'normal' growth

Posted By: Sherry <sherry_bevan@hotmail.com>

Earlier this yr, tank was ravaged by white spot and lost my two clowns.

After couple of months replaced with two youngsters who were both about 1.5" long. They settled in well.

However one clown is now about 3" long and the other is only 2".

They both seem to feed happily - if anything the larger one is shyer and doesn't seem to come out as quickly as the other at food time.

Any ideas on why one has grown so much more quickly than the other?

Thanks
Sherry
