Ok so maybe not HUGE considering that they can reach 12 inches, but this clown loach is definitely JUMBO at 8 inches long, 3 inches tall and 2 inches fat! I added him to my African Cichlid tank about 3 years ago and his growth exploded...while his 5 brothers stayed on that average slow growth rate, now half his size! Its so rewarding to have large fish; if its ever necessary...I have such a huge menu!

Plants in the Malawi Cichlid aquarium can work but be aware that most Malawi cichlids are diggers and occasionally will taste plants, especially if those cichlids are in the mbuna group. Plants that usually do well in African tanks are , and Java fern. The last two are especially good as they can be tied to a rock or a piece of wood and will grow directly on that, therefore eliminating the possibility of being uprooted by the fish. In addition, they are tough plants with a rather nasty taste to the fish.It’s important to appreciate that not all African cichlids are the same, and not all plants are the same either. Before attempting to plant your tank, you need to educate yourself with the possibilities. Most aquatic plants will not thrive in the alkaline water conditions required by African cichlids. This quickly reduces the selection of possible plants, but the good news is that there are still more than two dozen plant species to chose from. In my article Plants 102 I will discuss each of these plants and its specific care. What I want to discuss here is simply the idea that not just any plant will work and some that will work with one cichlid, will not work with another. Generally speaking, however, thick leafed species and Java Fern will work with practically any set up. But before you head off to your local fish shop, let’s talk about a few planting tips.
