I have heard that oscars and Clown Loachs can be in the same tank and actualy get along.

I was wondering if anyone could confirm this?

My oscars are about 6 inch long. And my clown loachs only 1.5 inchs. I am afraide to try , because I think the oscars would just eat the clown loach. But I was considering getting a few more clown loachs , maybe if I got them a bit bigger like 3-4 inchs they would be ok. Assuming what I read was true about them getting along. I"ll see if I can find the link again. anyways any info would be great ;)
I need more tanks...

how big is your tank? yes, clown loaches can get along with an oscar but you need a tank of at least 75 gallons. note that clowns should be kept in groups of 5-6. you can get them small ... they grow slowly and are too fast for an oscar to catch and eat.
you're never too old to have a happy childhood.
