    This dojo loach was about the size of a sharpie marker and it was very active not sure what species though I have heard there is about 3 species of these dojos 6372e138270996830918f412c7f3a794.jpg1c11532ef1796522fbaa9a807a28e43d.jpg9974a1f7fdd323e2429341e46eee9972.jpg

    A dojo loach is the species. There are different colours of them and other names if that's what your asking.

    There are a few species of Misgurnis, the most common being what folks call a Dojo or just the Weather Loach, Misgurnis anguillicaudatus. The fish in the photos looks like a young Dojo. You might want to look at loaches.com to verify the ID and get more info. There are gold and normal varieties, they are cold water fish, and get fairly good size.

    YES! another person that knows them as weather loaches. First time I mentioned that on here nobody knew what I was talking about... for me, weather loach is the natural colour, dojo is the golden variety and then albino is (duh) albino.

    I can never remember their username but she has a 10" golden dojo named Yeti. Gourgous fish and I hope my trio get that size. They're 8" now.

    Yes, thats my big boy Yetti. I got him a friend named ( I call him Fred Bud Kelley ) and I've had him now for 5 months and he's rapidly growing as well ( must be an albino trait to grow big ) as my other Dojo ( non albino ) seems to be a dwarf as he has not grown at all in the 3 years that I have had him! He's still pencil thin and the size of my Kuhli's - here's some recent video's of my fatty! :eek::D:eek:
