I have 2 YoYo fish, and they are great sizes. They are very friendly towards my clown loaches and i think they might be ready to breed. They are always out any time of the day. They are cute in a weird way but i love my YoYo fish.

Hi! Beautiful species, i have 3 burmese borders, 2 yo-yo, and 3 dojos all juvies (only about 1 1/2") and they are new to my community tank but to witness their dance is so cute. The biggest one is named peek-a-boo because he loves to play peek-a-boo with me. he comes right up to me in tank and when i move forward he moves back when i move back he comes foreward...very entertaining.
My dojos feed by hand and im trying to introduce this to borders but no success, probably still too young.

Hello all, I've a big fish tank which consists of quite a few fish. The tank is 5 feet long and contains a large Panaque (Royal Pleco), 3 Striped Raphael fish, and several clown loaches. When I first saw these I'm probably the only one to admit I wasn't keen until a friend bought some and I saw their nature and characters. I was fascinated and got some of my own, including Blue Botias. I must now admit they are my favorite fish and would be lost without them. They are cheeky, dancing up the side of the tank and always hungry! (but they are not overfed). he clicking when food is put in the tank is loud! Lots of hiding places are best but too many and you never see them. I feed mine on cucumber (loudest clicking), flake, catfish pellets, algae wafers, and sinking wafers. I vary the diet so they don't have the same each day. They also like earth worms chopped, bloodworms, and many other varieties of foods. One of the best fish I can recommend for an aquarium!

I absolutely love my Weather Loaches! I've completely changed my tank setup for them. Got rid of the gravel and went to a Black "Volcanic" Sand substrate. (If you get sand, make sure it's not the "live sand" for marine tanks.) The loaches love the sand! They burrow, dig, and sift through it all day and night long. Sometimes, all I see is their whiskers sticking out. I have a mix of artificial/live plants, some ornaments and rocks with hiding places and holes they can swim through. The most dramatic change was getting the Fluval 405 canister filter and replacing the old lid. I cut the plastic in the new lid with a soldering iron so it fits snuggly against the hoses. No gaps or holes. Now my tank's a safer cleaner environment for all my fish to live and play in. Plus, my loaches are more active than ever!

My Clown Loach is very happy in his tank along with 1 Platy, 1 Red Tailed Shark, 2 Dwarf Gouramis, 5 Cardinals, 2 Rummy Nose Tetras, 2 Lemon Tetras, 2 Panda Tetras, 2 Serpae Tetras, 1 Penguin Fish, 1 Scissortail, 2 Threadfin Rainbows, 1 Zebra Danio, 1 Molly, and a Silver Hatchetfish. I am thinking of getting another one, and a Butterfly Pleco, because he seems very active and delicate. I keep a close eye on him and he is one of my favorites in the tank.

i bought my first clown loach today and i think its an excellent fish for the community tank. these fish will scavenge for food and also bring colour to a very dull tank. i recomend these fish.

my yoyo loach is about 4 inches longs, and not aggressive at all. he just sits there under his rock cave and comes out when its time to eat, or in the late afternoon, or at night. hes not aggressive at all.

Had one of these a few years ago. It was one of the hardiest fish I have ever had. Once, it managed to get out of the tank during a water change, and starting moving across the floor. Then, we didn't see him for months and had assumed he died/had been eaten. When the tank was finally empty, we took out all of the decor and after about 5 hours, found him hiding in a hollow rock. He lived for months after that.

No Doubt, this is my most favourite fish of all time. It also makes me frustated because it's very fragile creature. Whitespots often kill them. I had 25 of them sized 2 inches and 2 of them at 4 inches. most of them died by whitespots, including the two 4 inches. It really makes me sad and frustated, only 4 left now. I always kept my tank clean and fresh, i change water every 3 day about 1/4 tank volume, i gave'em vitimins and quality food, but it seems it's not enough to keep the fish alive and healthy. Now i think twice before i will buy them again. Lately i read on the net that these clowns really, really need x-tra attention and caring. Still i love them.

my clown seems very happy. they are fairly new and they are living in my kuhli loach tank with 6 kuhli. he-she has been out playing and swiming around. if you put lots of plants in there they will feel safe snooping around. he gets the kuhli's out playing too. it's fun to watch. he is bound for a much larger comunity tank but i am growing him a bit first until he can fend for himself in there. he is still just 2 inches. if you try this be sure to leave out some water so that the filter output makes a stronger waterfall for your little guy to swim in. my kuhli's have learned to do this too. lol...
