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 4 yo yo loaches in a gallon container they were in my big 55 gallon tank, but they were eating the fry. Love these guys, but tend to be a little more aggressive than people say. At my store we put them under semi-aggressive fish. They are definitely good scavengers and will clean your tank. The only thing that gets me is that when they sleep they look like they're dead. When you go to get them they take off.

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.

My three yo-yo loaches (i've had them for under 6 months) are already over 3" one is almost 5" so yes, they do get bigger than 2.5" and rarely they'll get to be over 8. 6" is more like their max size.
