    Wow that's cool, I had no idea they would be that active. I've never kept dojos before.

    Mine are pretty active all the time especially at meal times but before a storm they constantly go from one end of the tank to the other just flying.

    They have pulled up/pushed all their plants down to one end of the tank and since their the only ones in that tank I left them. Here are couple of stills taken during the same period of time.
    I love the one of the smallest Dojo looking at me over the rock.

    Yep their not called weather Loaches for no reason. They react to the change in barometric pressure.
    I read that a long time ago seaman would keep them in huge jars so they would know when a storm was coming up.
    Yep the one looking over the rock is a cutie :) He is the smallest at exactly 4 inches not counting the caudal fin.

    Jaysee the fun has only just begun ;)
