The panda barbs were confused about who to school with They liked to follow the clown loaches wherever they went. All the while they were picking on each other and sometimes the clowns. But it really did seem like the pandas couldn't tell the difference between the loaches and themselves. It was really funny. Then the clown loaches would try to hang upside down with my two upsidedown catfish. They would try to invert themselves on the ceiling of the caves where the upside down catfish would hang out. It was like the whole tank was one big happy family. Eventually I had to move the barbs to a more aggtressive tank because they were stressing out the clowns. meliss_cole 2008-05-08 Answer no. 1 Vry stange, loaches wanting to be cat fish? Thats why they have barbels, they will turn into catfish. Well, hope your clowns have a big enough tank, cause clowns will be pretty big Jonathan 2009-05-10
