Ok I have an 80L planted tank and in my ignorance Ive ended up with 3 Clown Loaches. Now after lots of research I have learned that my tank is way too small for these fish, and there is no way that I can upgrade to the tank size needed. Ive had these guys for about 2 months now and Ive really gotten attached to them and Im really worried for their future!

I have gone around to every single store in my area that sells fish and the general info I got from all of them is that they sell clowns to anyone who wants one regardless of tank size. None of the owners are informing their clients as to the care of these fish and some didnt even know how large they get!! Now I have found a store that is willing to take my 3 in trade for something else but knowing what I know now, I know they will
