A Weak Moment

Today I was at one of the pet superstores (that dare not speak its name) looking for another Pleco cave, since the Clowns have taken over the last one I put in leaving the 2 Zebra Plecos duking it out for a hiding space. I had to walk past the tanks to get to the decorations and wood. As I was passing by, out of the corner of my eye I caught an orange flash. They had 3 tanks with Clown Loaches!

They were all skinny and scared but at 2" long they weren't the little Micro Clowns and no one seemed to have ich. I felt really bad for them there in those brightly lit store tanks with noting to hide or sleep in but really scratchy lava rock. Oh, I was SO tempted!

Then I though of my 4 fat, happy and healthy Clowns at home and knew that my loyalties lay with them. I really hope the stripey guys in the store find good homes
