Great fish. Bought it at PetsMart a while back, and it just jumps around in my tank in the early morning and late night. Loves to swim around with my tetra.

I bought my two weather loaches from a supermarket. So I saved them from slaughter They are meant for food and $9.99 a pound. They are bred commercially in China and almost the cheapest fish for food, $1 per pound.
When I was a kid, I kept a same loach in a bottle, and sometimes took it out to squeeze it. it survived all the abuse for many months. It just could not survive being forgotten for years in bottle without food.
My son is pretty kind to them. yesterday he stirred them with a chopstick for hours. One of them jumped out the bowl And he kindly take several minutes help it back. Today he seems to lost interest in them. So, maybe it is time give them a good life in my 30 gallon fish tank. It is good that other comments here indicate it to be peaceful.

My dojo loach is very active! He loves to play! i first put him in with one guppie, a frog, and another small algae eater. at first when i fed them he would move around a lot and scared my other fish. But i am sure that they will soon get used to him. He is very fun to watch. I recommend a dojo loach! They are so cool! I enjoy having him here and since he is new i hope to have many long fun years with them!

These loaches are very fun to watch! I have two in my twenty-gallon tank and they love to hide in my driftwood. They are very playful at night (they swim and squirm around like little snakes)and I highly recommend them.

Just got a Dojo. What a personality!!!! He is goofy and really a treat. He is loving his tank mates which are guppies and danios. Loves those snails but I usually have to crush them so he can get them at the bottom. High maintence not at all. I enjoy his joy at finding them fall to the bottom.

Fantastic loach I recommend them to anyone! My 2 are getting very big now (around 15cm) but still love positioning themselves half way up my plants. The bigger one (i call him male but have no proof of this yet) willingly loves to nibble on food from my hand. Looked into their background a bit as i bought them on a whim and found out that they were named 'weather loach' because of their tendancy to belch or growl when it thunders or when a storm is on the way...how weird! Great animals will be getting more and looking out for the golds!!
