Grow out tank questions.

Can I keep my clown loaches in a heavily planted 65 gallon tank with my bettas? I have 4 total loaches and none of them over 4 inches long. Thanks!

As a grow-out tank it's fine, but I would put them in a 75+ for long term. :)

Yeah clown loaches get HUGE! I was going to get some for my snail problem in my 10g until I realize they get like... 12" long...

Grow out tanks are fine. They buy you some time. Just be sure you do extra water changes to keep up on that water quality so they don't get stunted or anything.

They can be a bit boisterous with other fish, but I seriously doubt they'd try to eat him. They'd want to find out what he is, but it won't be voilent or anything. My only worry is that the betta will be freaked out by their constant crazy activity, but if it's heavily planted he'll have places to get away. :)

Ok thanks for that info I really appreciate it! My clown loaches tend to hide 90% of the time. They only come out to eat or at night when I am not watching lol.
