My dojo loach, while he may not be the prettiest fish in my aquarium, is definitely one of the most interesting. He seems to get along with my banjo and silver pictus cats and is not very agressive. Definitely a great fish.

I just got my Weather Loach today and he is a fun one to watch. The Burmese loach and the weather like to go around the tank and just play with each other, and all fun fish to watch.

I have one of these botia robusta in my 55 gallon tank and I must say he is pretty aggressive when he wants to be. Right now I have him in there with a 5in texas and 2 juvenile severums and he owns the aquarium. The texas and he got into a huge fight the first day over a cave, and the botia won. He regularly chases the severums right off the bottom if they go anywhere near the bottom of the aquarium. Very interesting fish, very tough, and he holds his ground when he has to.

I just wanted to say red-finned loachs are shy indeed and that you will need to watch your tank size!

I have mine in an outside pond with Goldfish. I thought I had lost him about 8 years ago. This year when I relined the pond I found this fellow still very much alive, bigger and very healthy. Strange that he does not come to the surface like he used to.

I have 5 yoyos in a 75. They are about 2 years old and range in size from 3 1/2 inches to almost 5 inches long. As active as these loaches are, I would not recommend keeping them in any tank shorter than 36 inches, and as large as they get, 48 inches would be much better. They are always playing, dancing about the tank, investigating the two gouramis they live with, tussling with each other and the 8 striped loaches they share the tank with.

I have 7 of these in a heavily planted 50 breeder with 3 weather loaches, a Nemacheilus masyae, a bristlenosed pleco, and 8 red eye tetras as dithers. I originally has a single one that I purchased with a 20 gallon tank, and gave him 4 companions when I moved him to the 50 with 5 yoyos. This made the BBLs quite shy, and even after removing the yoyos to a 75, I rarely saw the BBLs until I purchased 2 more to add to the shoal. Now, though they are still a bit skittish, they are much more often out and about in the front of the tank.

An interesting behavior I noticed when I was taking the tank down to move it - the BBLs would swim to wherever the pleco was hand hide under his pectoral fins.

Regardless of their year of shyness, these are some of the most beautiful fish I own.

I love weather loaches so much. They are very intelligent fish! They remember a lot, such as when I am placing thawed out blood worm in a certain area, they will gather in that specific area! My favoured fish are indeed weather loaches! Good luck with your weather loaches, weather loach keepers
