    loaches will kind of destroy almost every slope and burry out most plants .. so think twice before introducing them

    I had 3 clown loaches in this tank:

    The largest being around 15cm, on the left hand side below the mountain of plants I had a 15cm long piece of black PVC pipe, about 10cm in diameter like this:

    The loaches didn't destroy any of the plants, they would sometimes lift a bit of the carpet and I had to redo it again.

    I would not recommend them for a planted tank though, just giving an idea how to provide a safe environment for them with somewhere to hide.
