The Clown Loach (Chromobotia macracantha) is a popular freshwater fish known for its vibrant colors and playful behavior. They have an elongated body with distinctive vertical stripes of orange and black, which become more pronounced as they mature. Clown Loaches prefer a well-planted aquarium with plenty of hiding places, as they tend to be shy and will hide when feeling threatened. They are known for their social behavior and thrive when kept in groups of five or more.
