I have had the pleasure of keeping three zebra loaches for over a year now. They are the cutest little creatures. I made them a cave with rocks and a plastic pipe and they stay hiding in that area for most of the day. When they do come out they are busily zipping about the aquarium playfully nipping each other. I love them!

I recently purchased a single, very small Dojo. To my surprise the other day, I found that after only 9 weeks in the tank alone, she had babies. I can now enjoy 3 baby Dojos and the mom! I am really excited! :-)

Out of all of the fish I have (and have had) this is my favorite. They are soo amusing and cute in their own way. :)

I read the info on this page and noticed that it said they liked to be touched, so i stuck my hand in the tank. My dojo was scared at first, but warmed up very quickly! He let me pet him quite a bit! I started at the tail and he eventually let me pet all over him! I thought it was a little odd that a fish was that trusting but it was very cool!

I love watching my Horsefaced Loach make his way around the tank wiggling and burrowing his flexible nose around every individual piece of gravel looking for food. I am on the search to find out more about his unique eyes. He seems to "blink". He is definitely a great community fish as he is pretty much a loner.

I have an orange finned loach that is a beautiful bright blue. I named him Blue when I got him over 12 years Ago. I never thought any of my fish would live that long, I have several other fish that I purchased with him that are still alive too. Blue has so much personality and I love that he has eyelids. He lays in a great big log with only his head inside (usually) and his body sticking out. He looks like a dog in a dog house. When I feed my fish algae wafers, he will dart out and collect several and take them into the log before the plecostomus can get them all. About five years ago I went from a 55 gal tank to a 150 and bought a couple of orange and black loaches. About a year ago one of them (I guess) outgrew the log he had stayed in and moved in with Blue. I love my fish!

I have been keeping Sids for a few years now (in a 50 Gal tank) and have had them spawn. I was force to relocate them to another 50 gal tank as the tank they were in started to leak. I did a head count as I was moving them and their number had increased by 8. Though I had never seen any signs of spawning or small Sids, their numbers increased.

I bought a dojo loach 2 weeks ago and i have enjoyed watching him swim and just pop out. I have especially loved watching him find food. I have been cracking up because everytime he finds a flake of food on the bottom he will go straight up and have his head digging in the gravel and his tail way up in the air. The dojo loach is my favorite fish and gets along with all the other fish. I have never seen him nip at anyone. He is a joy to have in my tank.

these fish are crazy. They are completely active, beautiful, and fun to watch. I have a school of 5 in my 90 gallon tall tank, along with a yoyo loach. They swim up and down up and down on the side of the tank, and make you dizzy.
