Buy @ Sims Tropical Fish

A very active loach which spends the majority of its time scavenging for food. They are very social creatures and ideally should be kept in a group. A very attractive looking fish which are excellent for a community tank. Not seen that often in the shops.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Peaceful fish and the most ideal tank conditions are a well planted tank with plenty of hiding places.

They will accept most foods and especially like frozen bloodworm and brine shrimp. Also quite partial to cucumber (boil a slice for around two minutes before placing in the tank).

There are no reports of these fish having been bred in aquarium conditions.
