Acanthocobitis urophthalmus (Sand Loach, Banded Mountain Loach)
A stocky, striped loach with a compact body and long barbels around the mouth.
In the wild this fish inhabits shallow mountain streams, so an aquarium with a good current and plenty of oxygen is probably essential. Decorate the tank with sand, pebbles, and long-leaved plants to recreate this fish's natural habitat.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A completely peaceful species. It will eat small snails, but prefers a diet of invertebrates such as bloodworms. To some degree will scavenge for leftover flake and other foods that the other fish have missed.
Rarely bred in captivity.
