Very sadly I found one of my clown loaches upside down this morning & I could use some help determining cause of death. This perticular little guy was very shy & usually only came out for dinner (not even breakfast) so I'm unsure of how long ago he died. My guess is no more then 2 days, his body was quite rigid but still firm so not very long.
I've had all my clown loaches for more then a month & they just got over ich. They are about 3.5" each.
You'll notice from the photographs that his stomach was quite bloated & mis-shapen. I'd prefer not to cut him open if I can get an I.D. on external alone, but I'm guessing this might have been caused by worms.
