75 Gallon Tank Are Dojo Loaches Aggressive with Each Other?

Gameynerd23

Hello, I have five Dojo Loaches (2 brown and 3 gold) in a 75 gallon tank with around 40 glofish danios. The largest Dojo is about 6 inches and the smallest is probably 3.5- 4 inches. I see the largest one following the others around and I can't tell if this is playing or bullying. I don't think the largest Dojo can do much, if any, damage unless it can fit the target completely in its mouth. The Dojo doesn't chase the others all the time, really only when they're in the free swimming space.

They are very social, so I doubt the large dojo is being aggressive to the rest. It's been a while since I kept weather loaches, but they were constantly interacting with each other. I wouldn't worry too much about following. Nipping and short chases would be aggressive behaviour... But iv only seen this with clown loaches and similar loaches, they certainly do have a pecking order.

40 Danios sounds awesome!!!! I keep preaching to fit as many of one species as possible, so it's great to see!
