Serpenticobitis octozona (Serpent Loach)
A relatively small dark green hillstream loach with seven to nine thin gold vertical bands between its head and caudal fin. There is an obvious black eyespot on the base of the caudal fin. All the fins are striped.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
The species occurs primarily in hillstream habitats where the water is relatively cool, clear, and rich in oxygen. Requires an aquarium with a very strong water current, a soft sandy substrate, and suitable rocky caves where the fish can hide. Gregarious, but in small groups may be prone to bullying, so should be kept in reasonably large numbers, at least six. Feeds extensively on insect larvae and other small invertebrates. Does well on live and wet-frozen invertebrates such as bloodworms, glassworms and krill.
