Do different types of dojo loaches school together?

sj089

So, I have a golden dojo loach and am looking to get more. My question is, do different types of dojos school together? Or should I stick with the golden variety?

I do have other loaches of the angelicus botia variety, however they rarely hang out with my golden dojo, so he seems pretty lonely which is why I am looking to get more dojo loaches.

If anybody has experience with keeping different types of dojo loaches together, please let me know what your experience was.

I keep dojo and kuhlI loaches and they do not school with each other. I DO have one kuhlI loach that does hang out with one of my dojo loaches and they can be seen together all the time but I think its a rarity.

Yes, different Dojos will group together.

All 3 of mine school together!

I notice that my golds stay with my golds and my regular slate colored ones stick together. They don't hate one another it just seems like they prefer the company of someone who looks like them.

I've also noticed the slate ones are growing faster and seem more brutish.

I have 4 gold and 1 brown together in a 55 gallon tank to themselves. They all play and rest together. They are all technically the same species anyway just a different color variation.

People are the same species and tend to stay within their own coloring. From what I've seen, the fish I have that are different colors same species, the same colors stick together.
