Mesonoemacheilus triangularis (Zodiac Loach)

A slender, rather delicate looking loach with a pinkish silver body marked with mid brown reticulated bands edged with dark brown. The caudal peduncle and the tail fin are distinctly orangey, and there is a small black spot at the base of the tail.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Demands clean water, plenty of water current, lots of oxygen, and an abundance of appropriate foods. In the wild these fish live in fast-flowing streams where the water is very clean and typically cooler than the waters from which most other tropical fish come from. For this reason, these fish are best mixed with subtropical species like danios, Scleromystax barbatus, golden barbs, etc. that will thrive in similar conditions. Feeding is tricky because they are somewhat retiring and can lose out when kept with other bottom feeders. Provide things like bloodworms as well as algae wafers. Flake and pellets may be ignored. Shady areas under bogwood and large boulders are highly appreciated.

Breeding has not yet been reported in captivity.
