    I've recently just added these to my tank. I only got the two. Just to see how they'd fair. These are my first Loach, and my do i love them already!

    I'm already thinking about changing the whole scape of my tank around these guys. I have more wood arriving soon. Also will be getting more rocks, but this time they'll be smooth pebbles.

    Does anyone here know much more about these guys, as from what I've read, they are aggressive... But mine seem to like each other

    Should i have more than two?
    Would those shrimp tubes be good hiding spots for them?
    Ah and do they actively eat snails?

    I know they went crazy when i(sorry) crushed an unwanted snail for food for my other fish.
    I have MTS and the odd annoying pond snail (grrr)

    My tank is 125 liters
    My filter is a 1200lph external with a 600lph powerhead

    I think I've read that. I honestly can't find much on them. That is any different

    I have tetras which seem to also play in the current.
    And guppies.
    I have it so aeast half my tank has a permanent steong current and part that isnt so the guppies can rest. Though they actually seem to play in it.
    My loach are always busy. Never seem to hide. Always seem to be playing and digging in the sand :)
