Lepidocephalichthys guntea (Guntea loach, Lepidocephalus guntea)

Superficially similar to the common weather loach in size and shape. Sandy coloured body with a dark band along each flank and a dark mottled dorsal surface. Colour varies depending on mood and environment.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

A peaceful, even sociable loach that can be maintained in a community tank with no problems. These are burrowing loaches and should only be kept in tanks where there is fine sand for digging; gravel damages their skin allowing infections to set it. Basic care otherwise similar to other loaches.

Not bred in captivity.
