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.

Great fish for the aquarium in every way except one: You need a tank at least a meter and a half for a school (90 gallons). Other than that, every good remark you've read about them is true, and they even tolerate hard water very nicely. My tank is not large enough, so I took my six clowns and paid my dentist with them (he has a tremendous tank). But I didn't make this deal before they gained some bulk and finished every Malasian burrowing snail in my tank!

I've been told that the clown loach are a good snail eater so if you have a snail problem get yourself some clown loaches.

I noticed said they will only reach 12 inches in the wild. I'm not sure how big they will get in the wild, but in my large aquarium (a 180 gallon acrylic to be precise) They will get to be 18 inches or more and weigh anywhere from 1-2lbs if you give them the chance.
