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.

this is a fun playful and curious fish. Do not expect to see it often though as it enjoys hiding. To combat its timidness be sure to buy six as this will reassure the loach.

They are a very hardy fish in general.

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.
