I bought a Dojo Loach a couple of weeks ago and have found it to be a very great pet to have. it is loads of fun to be around as it always chases other fish around and jumps out of the water. I have also found that it enjoys clowning around doing its own thing. i have been trying to train my Loach to jump out of the water and let me touch it and i have had a lot of success. it only took me about 4 days to get such great success. i do think it was worth the money and i do think it is the best fish to buy. as it is such a great fish, i think everyone should have one. it is a great thing to have, i mean who wouldn't want a fish that you can train or have it just sit there. I HAVE NO REGRETS GETTING ONE.

These fish are awesome! I own one 4" horseface loach and he's probably my favorite fish in the entire 65 gal tank. He definitely has a whole lot of character, and I laugh every time i see him sifting sand into his mouth and out his gills. such a funny and unique way to eat.

They're definitely cute! but they freaked me out when I first bought them because I thought they were dead, but then I realised that that's how they sleep! One of them likes to lay down on the plants, he has his own little hammock!

I have a pair of dojo loaches called Ziggy and Zorro and everyone who has seen them instantly falls in love with these litte guys. They are friendly and gentle with the other fish (A mix of fancy goldfish and three hillstream loach) and seem really attached to each other. i feed a wide variety of foods, including flake, tubifex, bloodworm, catfish pellets and algae wafers. But the dojo loaches favorite is chopped earthworms which they go totally nuts for! They are really active fish who take everything in their stride.But they do like to have hiding places however or they will get stressed. I have a piece of curved bog wood in my aquarium which the loach (both the dojo loach and the hillstream loach) use as a kind of bedroom, all disapearing into it and then popping their heads out if they think something is going on! dojo loach do tend to dig up tank ornaments, plants and even the tubing for the air stones. So you need to make sure you have a good depth of gravel in your tank and that plants are bedded into the gravel firmly. But these guys are well worth a bit of extra work.

I have TWO dojo loaches and I love them. Both have their own personalities! Roxy is very scared when a human looks at her very closely. Stormy, on the other hand is very brave and is not easily startled.
Roxy was stuck in a place in the fish tank that has little water and no filteration and I just got her out yesterday!! She survived and is in very good shape.

My favourite freshwater fish! I strongly recommend an ideal number of 5 min. to 8 max individuals. By fall, as soon as you turn of the aquarium lights, keep a low light on the other end of the room and with luck you

I have 3 cinnamon loaches that I rarely see. They are extremely hardy to changes in temp, water, etc. They are excellent for cleaning/stirring fine sand substrate, too. They can also help with an out of control snail population if you don't feed them for a few days. Very peaceful and timid. Good community bottom dwellers, but not much for entertainment.

I have two dojo loaches and I LOVE them. They have distinct personalities and their non stop comedy antics are exactly that,
NON STOP! After getting to know these wonderful little fish I just shudder at the thought of people eating them, or worse, using them as live bait.

For sexing the fish, what it says in this profile is true. Also, a male's dorsal fin is noticabely larger than that of a female's. These means the male often tends to keep the fin semi erect.

They only get to be about 4" although a closely related ladder loach grows to about 7" and they look very similar. My yo-yo loaches are very playful with each other never bothering any other fish.
