Perhaps if you can get it healthy, your local fish store will take it?

How big is the clown loach that you have? They will grow somewhat fast for the first 6months - 1year, but other then that it will take 2, 3 years to reach its max size. Depending on the size of clownloach a 50 gallon should be fine for a year or two. You should also get him some friends.
